I feel that the lack of comments on the Southern Quadrant planning application bears testimony to the amount of work that some of us have done over the past few years in scrutinizing these plans in the early stages and making sure that the concerns of our constituents have been adequately expressed.
Over the years I have spent many hours at public consultations and in meetings with concerned residents and the representatives of Buckminster Trust.
These meetings have accomplished some major changes to the development and the Trust have been very good in accommodating residnets’ ideas where possible.
I am sure that quiet consultation and negotiation is a far better way to achieve results for my constituents than resorting to press articles.
