The deadline for receipt of public questions is 23:59 on Tuesday, 4 January 2022.

The Council’s scheme for public speaking at committee meetings may be inspected here:

Public Questions at Committee Meetings

 

a)    From Mr. Daniel Fulton

 

Is the council in possession of the automated event log from Dante Controller from the planning committee meeting on 8 September 2021, and is the council in possession of the automated logs of 1:1 messaging in Microsoft Teams that are stored on the device in use by the democratic services officer present at the planning committee meeting on 8 September 2021? If not, when was the evidence in question destroyed?

 

b)    From Mrs. Jennie Conroy

 

See statement in attachment – Appendix A

 

c)    From Mrs. Catherine Martin

 

The AAP proposes introducing 15,000 jobs into the area. Bearing in mind that many people will be travelling from locations where there is poor access to public transport, how many people do you estimate will be travelling to the area by car?

There will also be 4500 densely packed homes. 

Your transport studies concede that the roads are already at capacity and local residents really do not want more traffic misery. How much confidence do you have in the ability to control the development by the notion of a ‘trip budget’?

 

d)    From Mr. James Littlewood

 

See question in attachment – Appendix B
