The decision is fraught with controversy and at last night’s full council meeting, there was doubt cast on whether the development management committee would even be quorate, as Cabinet councillors and those who have attended relocation working group meetings, are advised that they could have compromised their impartiality and should not take part in the debate or vote.

The meeting starts at 2pm, but it is advisable to arrive early as hundreds of people are expected to crowd into the council chamber and into the nearby committee room, which will receive a live feed on a screen, from the meeting.

Spotlight are expected to cover the arrival of hundreds of people on their lunchtime news, with an evening update bulletin on what the decision was.

EDDC’s Knowle planning application will be the only item up for discussion.
