Friday December 24, 2004 Hilperton Gap Road meeting date(s).

Two dates confirmed for meetings about the proposed road.
The 'closed' meeting is, apparently, to enable an exchange of information between Members and Officers. This is to ensure that all information required by Members is available to the meeting proper on 28 January. This is despite all the information being in the Members' room at the council since July.

The planning system is already viewed with disquiet by many members of the public, and this sort of thing is not going to inspire confidence, in my opinion. The general perception is that a decision about the road has already been made, and this extra meeting, I would suggest, will only strengthen this feeling.

I appreciate that the chairman of the planning committee is fully entitled to call extra meetings but I fear that this one could cause problems. Could it even be grounds for a judicial review, I wonder?
