The plans for the proposed Community Centre were passed on 21st September at the council’s planning committee in spite of strong objections from residents of East Moor Village. Apart from an expensive Judicial Review, which would only look at the process, not the decision, there is little else we can do apart from complain about our lack of involvement and to learn from events that we need to be better organised. Outside bodies like the council are much more likely to pro-actively give us information and to take our views seriously if they have a representative body to speak to. Forming a residents association would meet that need and during the recent events there have been several expressions of interest in this.
