Faversham Times, 11 April: Faversham mayor David Simmons is reported as urging residents to “stop bickering” over the Neighbourhood Plan. He says that residents “have had an opportunity to have their say last year” and now should “come together” to produce the plan.
Is a once-a-year “consultation” – which even the organisers now acknowledge was badly flawed – really sufficient? Is “bickering” an appropriate synonym for “citizens being dissatisfied with what the steering group is doing and trying to get a word in edgeways”?
What do you think?
