Reminders – Next NLPG meeting 5th March – Thorney Golf Course 7pm start; Full Council 6th March at Council Chambers

We are still having our NPLG meeting on 5th March to update everyone about the delay to planning and what we have been doing recently.

We would also like people to come to Full Council on the 6th as it is the meeting where the budget is going to be discussed.  Clearly the energy park is the Cabinet’s secret weapon which will solve all of their financial problems.  Please attend to see if you agree.

Sustainability Scrutiny Meeting Monday 19th November

Cllr David Harrington has managed to call another scrutiny committee to discuss the poor handling of the proposed Wind and Solar Farms by Peterborough City Council.

He is focusing upon the lack of consultation and the manner the City Council have driven on with this shocking proposal without addressing the concerns of local residents.

If you would like to support his objection then:

a) Write an email outlining the lack of consultation you have received and how you feel the plan will affect you.  Please email to ASAP.  It is also essential that they copy David Harrington in so he is aware of any objections.

b) Attend the Scrutiny meeting on 19th November 5.30pm at the Council Chamber to show your support.

Apologies for the short notice but the council have only just released details.
