'... You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anybody or anything.'
'But the plans were on display ...'
'On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.'
'That's the display department.'
'With a torch.'
'Ah, well the lights had probably gone.'
'So had the stairs.'
'But look, you found the notice didn't you?'
'Yes,' said Arthur, 'yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard.'"
(Douglas Adams, The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy)
Lack of Publicity
Although previous consultations on Eastleigh Borough Council's Draft Local Plan have been well publicised, it has been less keen to let people know that a new consultation started on 1st June.
Hedge End Town Council's web site does have a link, and the documents are available at the Town Council office for those who prefer to peruse a paper version, but if people don't know they are there, they can't go along and consult them.
New Plan Documents
Comments are invited only on the proposed changes to the Plan and on new documents which have been produced since the last consultation. These new documents are:
- Draft Sustainability Appraisal Report
- Draft Habitats Regulations Assessment
- Draft Transport Assessment.
- Green Fields: Further Lib Dem Raids
- Wildern Mill: Lib Dems Change Their Minds
- More Countryside Lost to Lib Dem Housing Plans
