Disclaimer: These observations are not the ‘official’ minutes of the meeting, these are supplied by Whittlesey Town Council, normally (1) month following the meeting and can be viewed on their website.
This month’s WTC meeting started at 7:30pm and finished at 10:35 ^^ 3+ hours of at times arduous debate.
With the length and amount of discussion, I will attempt to keep the report a bit brief…..
Of course you could have joined the 10 members of the Public who listened to most of the meeting…more on this later.
All Councillors present except Cllr Whitwell (apologies sent)

There will be several parts to the reports due to its length….
Cllr Dee Laws gave a presentation (See below) about The Whittlesey Neighbourhood Plan, after which there was an opportunity to ask questions…which I did.
1/ Risk factors involved.
2/ Benefits not quantitatively evident.
3/ Example of March Town Council issues.
Cllr Laws answered these and other questions very eloquently.
The proposal went to a vote, which was passed.
I and 2 others abstained.
I am not against the NP – unfortunately do not see great benefits in it.
