5 weeks to go!
The Deputy Mayor has thrown down the challenge that they will make changes to the Unitary Plan if enough people give them feedback. It is essential that we all mobilise our communities to send in the feedback forms. I know several groups have organised templates for residents to add their own comments to. It would be great to hear about any other innovative ways you have thought of to make sure the Council hear loud and clear that the Unitary Plan does not achieve the results we want for character and heritage.
The Coalition will be doing a submission. What do you think are the most important points we should cover?
We have been given a tip that the earlier we get our feedback into the Council the more attention it is likely to get. There will be a rush towards the dead line of 31st May so later submissions may not be read as carefully.
We are quoted again in this morning's Herald. Our request for the evidential background to the UP at our first meeting with the Council has never been answered.
We have a flyer about the Character Coalition
available for member groups. On the front is the picture below and information about our aims and on the back are the Character Coalition 'bottom lines' and a list of member groups. If you would like printed copies to distribute at meetings etc please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
