Figures have revealed that a member of Lichfield City Council has turned up to less than a third of all of the meetings they were scheduled to attend in the past year.

The data from sessions of the council were obtained by Lichfield Live and show that of the 28 councillors, 11 had failed to attend at least three quarters of council and planning sessions since May 2019.

Bottom of the pile was Conservative representative for the Leomansley ward, Cllr Sara Pritchard.

The figures show that she attended 27% of sessions, missing 16 of the 22 meetings she could have attended.


Cllr Pritchard has been approached for comment.

(In an original version of this data, an inputting error meant Cllr Greatorex’s attendance details were duplicated from another councillor and therefore incorrect. This has now been corrected. Please refresh to ensure you are seeing the latest version)

  1. Why bother becoming a Cllr if you can’t be bothered to turn up to meetings? I bet there’s plenty of people who would jump at the chance to represent their area better than certain names on this list.
    Well done to Dave Robertson btw, great effort and it’s appreciated.

  2. Unless she is on the front line of the virus, she should resign as she is not representing her ward. Poor show Councillor, do the honourable thing and resign.
