A NEW councillor has been co-opted to Whitchurch Town Council.

However, there was some confusion regarding the process of how to co-opt a councillor at the council’s full meeting on November 5.

Andrew Klemz was initially announced as the winner, only for the council to retract the decision because the proper process of voting had not been followed.

After another 20 minutes, and much discussion regarding the correct process, Mr Klemz was announced again as the new councillor.

The architect and father-of-two will join the council on the development committee.
