Despite several members (including the other Councillor Mckeown) not been able to take part in the discussion, last nights Corporate Select Committee considered the report on disposal of land for the two housing schemes.
Despite a lengthy speech from me, objecting to the two proposals and listing many of the reasons why we are objecting to the schemes. On a proposal from Councillor Clive Beattie from Buxton, supported by Councillor’s Stephen Sharp and Ray Atkins from New Mills, along with Old Glossop’s Ivan Bell the schemes were recommended for approval to the council’s executive.
This now means that aside from Monday’s planning meeting, it is all down to the council’s executive committee which will meet on Tuesday 31st October to take the final decision on whether to go ahead with these schemes.
So if you have not objected yet or signed the petition, please do so, for details on how click here
