Public speaking restrictions at planning committee mtgs - Bloxham and Arnott battle it out on radio

Tuesday, 22 July 2014 1 Comment by Claire

Tomorrow’s (Wednesday’s) BBC Radio Devon will broadcast an argument between EDDC Cllr Ray Bloxham, architect of public speaking restrictions at planning committee meetings - and Paul Arnott, chair of the excellent East Devon Alliance.

The argument is incidentally about public speaking restrictions at planning committee meetings, which comes before full council tomorrow evening, as part of the cabinet minutes.

Listen in! 

I will post up the iplayer link to the programme afterwards too…
