No consultation


Quite rightly, the planning committee turned down the application for more houses at Hopwood with a unanimous 12-0 vote.

Our ward councillor claimed that he supported the applicant as he “thought it best for Hopwood”, yet he has never attempted to consult his constituents: no surgeries, no mailshots, no campaigning, just his own opinion as to what is absolutely not best for Hopwood, or the district of Bromsgrove.

He found the time to communicate with the applicant’s agent and encourage the application without ever consulting his constituents. He has no alternative but to resign; he has misrepresented us, putting matters like council budgets and his own opinion over those he represents.

We want democracy and representation, something our ward councillor refuses to respect.
