Councilor Young has advised that the next LHM Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday 10 November at the Nerang Administration Building at 2pm.
Griffith University experts will present their findings contained within the report to the group enabling questions to be raised and clarified.
A key point was that the report would not be available UNTIL AFTER THE MEETING!
Clearly this is unacceptable! The Care Group cannot understand the rational behind withholding a report from the community.
The Care group planned a public meeting after the release of the report to allow residents and users to raise their concerns to be addressed at the meeting. Without the prior release of the report, no community consultation can take place.
Representatives attending the meeting have to come up with questions “on the spot” without any prior review of the presentation or report. Again, this is unacceptable.
The Care Group request that;
- The Report and any Presentations be available at least 3 weeks before meeting as has been the case with previously.
- That the draft meeting agenda be available and that attendees are given the opportunity to add to the agenda.
- That the general public be allowed to attend the meeting if they so desire – the proposed location has very limited space given social distancing.
- That adequate time be allowed for discussion. There are numerous questions that remain unanswered from the previous meeting a year ago which is unacceptable.
