The questions and responses to the first of these meetings can be read here.

We are not sure if this style of meeting will be more successful than the Area Committees that preceded them but it did appear that there were many more councilors and official attending than members of the public.

It did seem that too many officials, such as the Essex County Council Highways representative, were sat at the very back with no way of recognising them meaning questions in those areas were lacking.

Also having no Agenda may be a good idea to allow a wider spread of questions and allowing the meeting to flow more freely, however an aide memoir would have been useful to allow identification of the people present and their responsibilities.
