Our Local Enterprise Partnership agrees it isn’t a “democratic representational body” and puts it in writing!

Our Local Enterprise Partnership has published a list of consultations to which it has responded on our behalf (though, of course, not having consulted US) which contains this golden nugget:

Consultation:

West Somerset Council & Taunton Deane Borough Council to create a new district council to replace both.

Our LEP’s response:

“Letter sent stating as the LEP is not a democratic representational body it does not as a matter of policy comment on such issues relating to democratic representation.”
