Thursday 28 March: both the Faversham Times and the Faversham News report on a rather lively AGM of the Faversham Creek Consortium – though possibly not lively enough to require police intervention, as reported in the News. We sincerely hope that Mike Cosgrove will be able to confirm that his opening remark about needing a police presence to maintain public order was not meant to be taken seriously.
Coverage of critical questions about the Neighbourhood Plan – and about consultation in general – is unfortunately overshadowed by reporting on the debate about the ZF5 footpath, which was summarily cut short. As well as denying residents a right of reply, this also deprived other Consortium members of the final question-and-answer session they had been promised – which rather underlines the problem about consultation.
Were you at the meeting? What do you think?
