The meeting papers for the next steering group meeting (12 September) are now online. They include information about new members; there may be others who are not yet on the list (eg, representatives of the landowners and of the Faversham society). They also include terms of reference (which suggest that only the four town councillors on the group will have full voting rights; votes of the other members will be “consultative” only) and standing orders (which indicate that meetings will continue to be conducted with all the formality of a full council meeting).
Are these the people who should be on the steering group? Are there others who should be included? Are there any who should not be included? Are the terms of reference and the rules for the conduct of meetings appropriate for a group of this nature to represent the broader community?
What do you think?
