More details from petition creator

The proposed Local Development Plan as not being “sound” to present to the Secretary of State. Consecutive Officers have failed to engage with the community to ensure the consultation process is transparent and fully understandable to residents and businesses within Runnymede. No information has been made available for the following: • The Habitats regulations • Strategic Highways modelling • Evidence of the Water Cycle Studies • Air Pollution assessments • Gypsy & Traveller accommodation assessment

Until the Community can be assured that proposals can be adopted without serious impact on quality of life for current and future generations the Council Members must direct officers to fully comply with clarity on the consequences of Officers proposals.
