And the reason that the clerk's advice is taken is that s/he will be well versed in legislation pertaining to local government.  Cllrs may not have the legislative knowledge that town clerks have.

Wrong comparison. If the person who sits in the chair of the House of Commons is the Speaker, then the equivalent of that post in the town council is the Mayor. The Mayor chairs the town council meetings. The town clerk is an employee. The town clerk, amongst other things, advises the elected councillors on procedural matters.

How is this new job being funded? From the minutes of last week's (6th March) Dawlish Town Council meeting: PROPOSED EVENTS, PROJECTS AND TOURISM OFFICER Members considered the draft job description for the proposed Events, Projects and Tourism Officer. The Finance & General Purposes Committee had considered the item at its meeting on 28 February and had made a recommendation to the ...

See below extract from minutes of full Dawlish Town Council meeting held last week (6th March). A letter had been received from Teignbridge’s Planning Department regards the preliminary enquiry to the suggestion of siting a playpark near to the Tourist Information Centre on The Lawn. The response was such that if the height was no more than 4m and curtilage was less than 200 cubic metres ...
