Brent Conservative Group have tabled a motion for the September 18th Full Council meeting calling for an independent inquiry into every aspect of Brent Council's planning process:
This Council notes that our residents have lost confidence in the Brent planning system.
Residents tell us that consultations are mere public- relation exercises, that decisions are often perverse and some seemingly politically- motivated.
We note last year's damning report on the Brent planning service by PWC, and agree to hold an independent inquiry into every aspect of the planning process. This Council agrees that this is the only way that we can hope to restore residents' confidence in our planning service
