• Extension to consultation period rejected by panel

  • The recommendation to LDF Panel members was to approve a consultation period starting on Monday 21 November through to Monday 16 January.

    I argued that launching a consultation period as people were preparing for Christmas would not be effective and would result in far fewer responses as people’s minds turned to Christmas preparations rather than commenting on strategic planning documents.

    I proposed an extension to the period by two weeks further into January.

    I was outvoted by two votes to nine.
