Six people have applied to become the ‘Independent Person’ holding politicians in Dacorum to account.

Until a week ago there had just been one expression of interest in the role but following an article in last week’s Gazette and an extension of the deadline the numbers swelled.

Interviews are taking place this week and an appointment is expected to be approved at a full meeting of Dacorum Borough Council on July 11.

Council bosses are seeking someone to help deal with complaints about borough, town and parish councillors.
