Stop Spelthorne Borough Council's Local Plan
The residents of Spelthorne expect you to always act in a transparent and appropriate manner. Reschedule and expand this public consultation so every Spelthorne resident can participate and challenge this inappropriate plan.
Why is this important?
On 5th November 2019 Spelthorne Borough Council released details of its new Local Plan. It will affect YOU, YOUR children, YOUR family, YOUR friends, YOUR neighbours, YOUR community and YOUR borough for decades to come!
Not knowing is dangerous and the decisions being made by the Council Leader and his cabinet of allies will negatively affect our borough for many years to come! Spelthorne’s Local Plan must withstand scrutiny and it’s up to every resident to challenge it.
The consultation ends on 7th January 2020 and there are only 3 public events all in November and all within the same 7-day period. The Borough Bulletin, distributed to all residents the first week of December will only contain eight pages of Local Plan news and that's halfway through the consultation period.
We want Spelthorne Borough Council to reschedule this consultation, be fully transparent and arrange more public events because every resident has the democratic right to participate, challenge, and respond to this invasive and disturbing plan.
Please support our petition by adding your voice so Spelthorne Borough Council has no choice but to listen to the people they work for; it is unacceptable for the Council to act in such an inappropriate manner.
The support of every resident is essential because it’s not their borough, “It’s Our Spelthorne” and we all have to protect it. https://www.itsourspelthorne.org.uk/
