A Voice from the Village Community, be it Urban or Rural
So you, along with most of your colleagues didn't bother to go to the public consultation the other Saturday where these plans and one employee of EKO LLP were present at Clarendon School's Media Centre?If this is such a major reversal of the Local Plan for this area surely it goes to a wider body than the Planning Committee anyway?
Sorry, but as a member of planning, I would be wrong to go to these sort of meetings, I will start to look at the application when it comes forward with officer reccomendation
Right osandy and wills
I'm sorry to be slow but please nlighten me as to why it would be wrong of you to attend such meetings.
Matt, simple really, If I, or any other member of planning attended formative meetings prior to an application being lodged on our own account we could be percieved to be part of the application. If officers are present that is a different story.
KenYou do talk a load of rubbish at times. The presentation was by officers of EKO (East Kent Opportunities), a company wholely owned by TDC and KCC. Your Deputy Leader Roger Latchford is a director.To suggest that you shouldnt go to be informed is patent rubbish.If you couldnt be bothered, just admit it.
David, I will not get involved in a spat with you over this. As you well know the code of conduct is left mostly down to councillors to interpret. I take the view that planning members should be a bit like a jury, and avoid, if they can, sitting in judgement on something they have been, in their opinion, involved with prior to the planning committee that it comes before.My judgement was, and still is, do not get involved until the application comes to the council.
