As we thought, but sooner than we thought, Spelthorne will start to “review” our Local Plan at a meeting of the Local Plan Working Party on 3 September.
The Local Plan Working Party comprises a cross-party group of nine councillors, plus the Head of Planning, John Brooks. The meetings of the Local Plan Working Party are not open to the public.
This is totally unacceptable. This is a matter far too important to be left to the senior politicians and officials who have – to put it mildly – been less than transparent about this whole issue of the development of Green Belt land at Kempton Park.
There needs to be full and direct residents’ representation on this Working Party, or a pre-determined result will be steamrollered over us.
