Appointment of an Honorary Alderman of the Borough
Council are asked to approve a nomination received for former Borough Councillor, Robin Sider, to be bestowed the title of Honorary Alderman of the Borough and to pass the following resolution:
“We, the Mayor and Councillors of Spelthorne Borough Council, in pursuance of Section 249 of the Local Government Act 1972, do confer the title of Honorary Alderman of the Borough of Spelthorne upon Robin W Sider BEM, in recognition of the eminent service rendered by him to the Council.
As a ward Councillor for Shepperton Town and a leading Borough Councillor for 24 years until May 2023, he gave so much to the local community through the regard he had for the residents of Shepperton as well as the residents of the Borough as a whole. As Deputy Mayor of the Council for 2001 to 2002 and 2011 to 2012 he supported the Mayors in their roles and then when made Mayor for 2002 to 2003 and 2012 to 2013 he supported many local charities and gave up a considerable amount of personal time to assist outside organisations. We accordingly admit Robin Sider BEM to be an Honorary Alderman of the Borough of Spelthorne.”
Note that under Section 249 of the Local Government Act 1972, the passing of the Honorary Alderman resolution by the Council must be by not less than two-thirds of the Members voting thereon.
Council resolved unanimously to agree in principle to bestowing the title of Honorary Alderman of the Borough on ex-Councillor Robin Sider BEM.
