The MP for north Cornwall and councillor for Wadebridge West has confirmed he will resign at a full council meeting on February 16.

Conservative Scott Mann (pictured) has taken Cornwall North from Liberal Democrat Dan Rogerson by polling 21,689 votes (45%) to Mr Rogerson's 15,068 (31%).
During his acceptance speech, Mr Mann thanked Mr Rogerson "for all your work over the past 10 years," adding: "Thank you very much, North Cornwall, I won't let you down."
The seat of Cornwall North on the Atlantic coast includes the popular resorts of Padstow and Bude, and the historic towns of Bodmin and Launceston. This part of Cornwall is a magnet for tourists and many residents work in associated industries to accommodate and feed them. One in 20 works in agriculture, farming and fishing - the 13th highest proportion of all the constituencies in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures.
The population profile here is similar to the rest of Cornwall - it has a higher than average number of pensioners. White owner-occupiers predominate, although one in 10 of the population lives in social housing. One in six is self employed - one of the higher proportions of any constituency.
A Liberal Democrat seat since 1992; in 2010, the party's Dan Rogerson held on with 48.1% of the votes; Conservatives got 41.7%, UKIP 4.9% and Labour 4.2%.
