Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP) – Broadland District, Norwich City, and South Norfolk councils working together with Norfolk County Council ...
We congratulate them on actually listening to criticism and rectifying matters but it is somewhat ironic that today is the last day for the submission of comments on the Statement of Focussed Changes to the Joint Core Strategy.
'Today?' you might ask. Yes, today - after 6 weeks of telling us that the closing date was the 30th August they realized at the very last minute that the 30th was a Bank Holiday and changed the date to the 31st. 'Press release?' you might ask. No - nothing. Just a few lines at the bottom of their website's homepage. Broadland District Council had even issued their own press release on the 27th August entitled 'final chance to comment on changes' but they too had used the 30th as the final day.
This all seems rather too similar to the hastily arranged 'drop in' events which were supposed to give local communities the chance to find out more about the proposed changes to the JCS but were advertised after some events had already taken place. If it wasn't so important it would almost seem farcical .....or is that Basil Fawlty heading up BDC?!
For a bunch of professionals both organisations seem to get things wrong on a far too regular basis.
