News Flash – EDDC Strategic Planning Committee recommends withdrawal from GESP

After three hours [correction – FOUR hours – time flies as you watch history being made] of intense debate,  a “kick the can” down the road motion and minor amendment were defeated by 4 to votes to 9 (amendment) and 4 votes to 10 (motion).

The Committee then voted by 8 to 4 (1 abstention) to recommend to full council that EDDC notifies its neighbouring councils that it is withdrawing from the GESP whilst retaining full co-operation. The recommendation is also made that EDDC immediately commences to progress its own Local Plan.

The successful motion was proposed by Cllr. Eleanor Rylance and seconded by Cllr Paul Arnott.
