The ombudsman has taken the unusual step of naming a councillor who did not declare an interest when considering a planning application.

Douglas Snowley was a member of the now abolished Holderness BC, which has been found guilty of maladministration and injustice and told to pay a resident£150.

According to the ombudsman Mr Snowley took a leading role in a meeting that chose a site for a development. There were two sites proposed, one near Mr Snowley's house.

Mr Snowley described his failure as an innocent mistake: 'I should have declared an interest but I completely missed the opportunity.'
