When did you decide the closing time for registering for the “drop-in” session on 15th October? And why was this deadline not included in the consultation booklet?
We were keeping a close watch on Government Guidelines with regard to Covid-19 and the ability to meet people indoors. We didn’t put a deadline in the booklet as we wanted to keep as much time available as possible for people to register whilst still allowing sufficient time to organise a consultation.
The deadline for consultation was announced on the website on the 1st October – at this point the consultation has been ongoing for nearly 3 weeks and we had had no-one register. We also notified Cllr Amanda Jenner of this closing date and it was also published on various other social media.
