    As the areas noted have no real definition, the publicising of such a list will again lead to speculation and concerns, we had this with the usual NIMBY effect at the Etheldore Estate some years ago. What is needed is a completed list and site maps so that informed discussion can take place not just strirring the already muddy waters for political gain.

    Till the oposing political parties come forward with real alternatives what hope do we the electorate have in voting in some real members for the Council with minimalistic voting figures.

    Hello Mr. Wickham, I think we have met before. I agree that all this information should have been made available with this consultation. But the consultation has been specifically designed to be made without it. You are asked to agree the allocations now and the specific sites later. But once you have agreed to 400 then that is it. How on earth can you judge whether an extra 400 houses in Hockley is acceptable when you do not know where. I had to prise this information out of the Council. If it creates the furore that this is wrong then I think that sort of protest is quite right too.

    I agree that is so disappointing that greater energy and vigour has yet to be directed against this sorry situation.
