Consultation? Broadland District Council do not know the meaning of the word.
They asked local people if they were in favour of the Exemplar and the response was a resounding 'no' but they still intend to plough ahead with their plans. So much for democracy. So much for localism.
The Exemplar scheme has been a farce from beginning to end - how much money have they wasted pretending to 'consult'? They now say that the local community misinterpreted the purpose of the consultation - but why ask the question if you were never going to take any notice of the answer?
