At the well attended Town Council meeting last Thursday 5 November, the Chair, Carolyn Youngs was asked by a number of residents why she had spoken in favour of MP2 at the SCDC's Planning Committee meeting on 29th October when in fact the Town Council had voted 6:2 against it. Ms Youngs was not answering any questions.
However, what is clear from both the Planning Meeting and last Thursday's Town Council's meeting is that there is a breach of trust.
We should have absolute trust in our elected representatives to fairly represent the views and wishes of the residents of Framlingham. We expect members of the Town Council to work conscientiously and diligently on behalf of the residents of Framlingham.
What we do not expect is for them to state their own views or even a hypothetical view, should the Neighbourhood Plan be adopted. And there is even a question mark over the way data was collected and recorded for the NP!
Well, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered...and we thought it would be an excellent idea to allow the residents of Framlingham an open forum to voice their concerns, table any questions, make suggestions...whatever is pertinent and relevant to the situation the town now finds itself in..
If you would like to come and discuss these and other issues, join us on Monday 23 November, Unitarian Meeting House at 7pm.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as spaces are limited to a total of 70 people. If it looks like interest is greater than we will change the venue and let you know accordingly.
