Council restricts number of speakers at Monday's Cabinet meeting considering Scrutiny Report on Carlton-Granville proposals

The Scrutiny Committee's recommendations on the Carlton-Granville issue will be considered by the Cabinet on Monday April 15th. The controversial proposals inspired a record number of speakers from the community at Scrutiny but the Council has moved to restrict the number allowed at Cabinet.

In an email to applicants Brent Governance Services said:
Please be advised that due to the high number of requests to speak received so far, the number of speakers has had to be limited on a first come first served basis.

There have been two previous opportunities for members of the public to express their views on the Carlton and Granville Centre Sites proposal - one at the recently held Resources and Public Realm Scrutiny call-in meeting on 3rd April and one at the original Cabinet meeting on 11th March 2019.

A further representation will be made by the Chair of the Resources and Public Realm Scrutiny Committee, Cllr Matt Kelcher, who will also be in attendance on Monday to relay the Committee’s stance on the proposals. For more details on the views expressed at the call-in meeting, you may wish to refer to the minutes of that meeting.*

In light of the above, therefore, your request to speak could not be accepted.

The Cabinet Meeting is at 4pm (when most people are working!) on Monday April 15th in Boardrooms 3-5 at Brent Civic Centre. The meeting is open to the press and public.
