Important Zoom Meetings Now Ended
As part of their Consultation with the public Barts Heath has recently held a series of three public Zoom meetings
These were held on:
Those attending were very dissatisfied with the amount of time reserved for answering questions, the questions the panel selected to answer, and the shallowness of the answers given. We have however been promised answers to ALL the questions asked in a "FAQ" section on their website which at time of writing nobody has been able to find. We feel that we have been "fobbed off" on all of the most critical matters that we raised.
The survey is worded in such a way that is it difficult to say no to any of their questions. However the way they are worded suggest that they will only apply to the land that Barts is selling to private developers and will therefore have no influence on what will finally happen to the land.
