Cabinet Meeting: Insight

The following is an observer's view of last Wednesday's important Meeting. Meetings reveal much of their participants as well as final decisions taken. There is still work to do if we are to send the massive national house-building programme back to the Government for a re-think: let's see democracy in action! Deputations in order of appearance: Rosie Law (SWHayling spokesperson), made strong presentation for the permanent removal of site UE18 (area bordered by North Shore Rd., Sinah Lane and Hayling Billy Trail) for known environmental and sustainability reasons.
