All in the plan­ning

WHEN you have a V2 Draft WRC Plan­ning Scheme you have con­sulted and pre­sented to the com­mu­nity, why would you de­sire to sub­mit an­other ver­sion, V3, to the min­is­ter? That is ex­actly what hap­pened at the coun­cil met­ing on De­cem­ber 9, 2015. It was voted down 5/2 but then the mayor tried to re­peal it, which again was lost.

This V3 was never shown to the com­mu­nity and the mayor wanted it sub­mit­ted to the min­is­ter. Now an­other coun­cil­lor wants V3 to come back again for con­sul­ta­tion this time, even though it was re­jected by coun­cil­lors, who in­stead voted V4 for fur­ther com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion. Which coun­cil­lors do not like a ma­jor­ity vote and will try any­thing to get their way? Watch this space.
