Tory councillor fails to act on notice

Ooh, the shame. A Tory councillor, who happens to also be a landlord, has pleaded guilty to failing to carry out the necessary improvement works to his Primrose Hill rental flat.

Cllr Bucknell failed to act on an improvement notice issued by Camden Council on the 22nd August, 2014.

Ironically, Cllr Bucknell used to be Camden Conservatives’ spokesman for housing. 

The Cllr Bucknell pleaded guilty at  Highbury Magistrates Court, arguing there were complicated 'significant mitigating circumstances' and asking for additional time to prepare a statement of mitigation before sentencing. The court agreed to delay sentencing.
