Hart Cabinet Council has re-started the failed consultation on the Local Plan, details can be found here. In a master stroke of organisation, the link to the detailed consultation page does not seem to work at the time of writing. We will digest the materials and then post again with our views on how Hart residents should respond to it.
In other news and without a hint of irony, Hart Council cabinet member, Steve Forster has resigned his position on Fleet Town Council (full article here). He was particularly irked by the planned rise in Fleet’s share of the council tax and his other reasons for resignation inlcuded:
“Too much money has been spent on consultations”
The council is “out of touch with residents”
“When it comes to strategic vision and then importantly delivery, which could really improve the town…I believe they still have a long way to go”
Hart Council is also planning to increase the council tax by 1.99%.
Given that he feels so strongly, one is left wondering if Steve will also resign his position on Hart Council as it appears to us as though it suffers from a similar malaise.
