This is a LibDem Councillor from Canterbury City Council and according to KMOnline, Kent's Finest, or at least The Serious Economic Crime Unit have begun an investigation into suspicions of corruption.
Cllr Roger Matthews, a Planning Committee Member at Canterbury City Council and Julian Brealy, who owns Herne Bay Golf Club have been arrested on suspicion of corruption and released on bail. Mr Brealy is under investigation for a criminal offence but completely denies the allegation and Cllr Matthews is helping the police with their enquiries. Cllr Matthews is quoted as saying that "I hear the gossip just like others have."
Anyway, as this is a problem in CCC and not TDC , I leave you to go and read the full KM story at http://www.kentonline.co.uk/kol08/article/default.asp?article_id=45264 .
However, it's reassuring to know that Kent Police have such a wide range of interests when it comes to investigating crimes and I must make a note of The Serious Economic Crime Unit, I didn't know it existed.
