Last nights Parish Council meeting

The minutes from last nights meeting in Hullbridge can be found here

I was unable to attend the meeting and it appears, from these minutes, that the Parish Council decided not to do a newsletter to the residents to let them know about the Core Strategy Consultation or the response that the Parish Council was doing.  I had asked for this to be put on the Agenda as an emergency motion, which it was, as I felt residents did need additional information in order to respond to the Consultation adequately.

The Parish Councils response to this consultation was also agreed and hopefully when refined will address the changes to the Core Strategy that the Consultation is on.

On the planning side the Parish Council decided not to object to the planned Hotel at Lords Golf Club by a narrow 4-3 vote.  We will now wait to see what the District Council recommends on this.

It appears to have been a lively meeting and although I am disappointed in the decision not to produce a newsletter that’s democracy at work.
