Scrutiny committee criticised failures of Borough Council over green space sell offs.

The task and finished group of the scrutiny committee into the 'Newcastle Development Programme' identified failures to consult the public and fully assess the validity of the seven sites planned to be sold for development.

On the final scrutiny committee meeting on 20 July 2011, The chairman Cllr Loades made around ten recommendations to Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council to be considered at full Council. These recommendations are summarised as follows:


Scrutiny Group
Final Meeting 20th July 6.30 Civic Centre- recommendations to be put forward by the Chairman and debated/agreed
Cabinet 26d July 10am Civic Centre- Discuss recommendations
Council 28th July 6.30 Civic Centre- Members of all Political Parties will Vote on the recommendations- several petitions from across all of the seven areas affected will be heard.We will also ask for a recorded vote, so we know exactly which of our Councillors is voting to protect our Green Space Heritage across Newcastle.
We will then know how to vote at the next election.
