Denis Tegg's Presentation Last Evening at the Civic

Here is Denis's presentation to last evening's meeting at the Civic Centre that caused some degree of consternation within the audience close to me, and I guess elsewhere in the room. Denis did not mince words in pointing out the deficiencies of our Council to date in meeting the requirements of the now 7 year old Coastal Policy Statement.

It is to be hoped that recent publicity of this situation has had the desired effect -certainly the announcement at yesterday's Council meeting on long term performance measures, and in particular, the completion of the Coastal and Hazard Management Plan:

"A district wide strategic framework is under development, however the dual focus of progressing both the practical programme and the district wide strategic framework has stretched resources. The scope of this strategy has widened, and the framework will now be completed in 2017-18, as part of the development of the 2018-2018 Long Term Plan, led by the Strategic Planning Team."

We will see!

But they would not have made that commitment in this Paper without being confident they could complete the task. They know that many are watching, and waiting.
