A representative from Back Garden attended the Eastcott Forum meeting at the Council Offices last night.
The objective is to require the Planning Committee to call in for consideration changes of houses from single to multiple occupancy. To achieve this a forum must meet and produce a final proposal by November this year.
Back Garden has reservations about many aspects of this: need, failure to consult residents, independence of the group and timetable, are perhaps the most significant.
Consultations within Back Garden are now taking place regarding our formal position, but we are also waiting on news regarding the final composition of the Steering Group that will do most of the work from our Councillors.
