Redbridge Council Consultations
- Reminder

There are two major consultations out at the moment:

First we have the Planning Brief for the Redbridge Local Plan for the next 15 years, see earlier post here. This includes the Oakfield option so if you haven’t had your say yet there is still time as this consultation closes on 22nd December. There is one final “Drop in session” where council officers will be on hand to answer your questions. This is on Tuesday December 16th from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Wanstead Library.

Second we have the Council Budget for the next 3 years known as the £70million challenge, see earlier posts here and here. There is no closing date for this one, but the next financial year is rapidly approaching and the council want our help with the scratching of heads and strokey beard moments. You can find it on the award winning Redbridge-i here. There is also a video below.

As always there are the critics, but I like it. In fact I will go so far as to say that there has been a marked improvement in communications from the Council (and I’m referring to the Council, not the administration) over the summer. Just because some elderly people (and it’s not just them) do not have access to the interwebby is not a reason to not use it effectively and imaginatively. By contrast do have a peek at the previous version from 2010 which appears to be modelled on a 1950s BBC information broadcast.
