An Extraordinary Full Council meeting will be held on Friday October 16th to discuss the Healthy Neighbourhood Scheme. The meeting follows a request from members and currently is due to be held at the not very convenient time, for those with children requiring pick-up from school and working councillors, of 3.30pm. The motion on the agenda will request further clarification from the Lead Member for Regeneration. Cllr Shama Tatler, about the scheme.
This follows concern expressed at the recent Labour Group meeting LINK over issues such as consultation with residents, the decision making progress, and the criteria for judging the success or otherwise of the schemes that are already in place. Sources suggest the meeting with be short, perhaps only 30 minutes. As with all Full Council meetings, except the AGM, residents should be able to make requests to speak.
The meeting has not yet been advertised on the Council website but normally 5 full working day's notice is required to speak at a meeting or present petitions so any applications should be made as soon as possible. firstname.lastname@example.org
The agenda has not yet been published for the meeting. I will publish it as as soon as it is available.
