CONSULTATION - WHAT CONSULTATION!!

YOU WILL RECALL FROM OUR END OCTOBER REPORT

NOW WHAT

We’ve spent four months trying to build trust and cooperation between the community and the council officers involved . So it is frustrating to say the least that the promises are already broken when we get down to planning the first consultation meeting – to plan the future course of the discussions.

WHAT DO WE WANT

  1. CWC ideas on consultation to be included on the agenda for the meeting on the 5th December
  2. Specific budgets allocated for consultation (the Elephant got 400,000)
  3. Staff advising the community to be independent from the Council
  4. Our MP, local councillor and planning aid advisor to be included in the process.
  5. Southwark Council to take control over those employees who continue to pay lip service to consultation.

Despite this, we will be there on 5 December, representing the community campaign and fighting to protect Canada Water and its surroundings. We are in discussions with the Council and hopefully some of the issues may be resolvable before the meeting.

THE MEETING WILL BE AT 7.00 PM ON TUESDAY 5TH DECEMBER AT THE ALFRED SALTER PRIMARY SCHOOL, QUEBEC WAY.

OBERVERS ARE WELCOME – PLEASE JOIN US AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT.
