To investigate them further the ten members of the committee are offered site visits. The visits are always the Thursday before the Monday committee, on a three week cycle.
Today, as is often the case, only the Chair of the Committee, Cllr Cheyne, and I turned up. Sometimes Cllr Fairclough turns up for Weybridge visits and Cllr Mitchell turns up for Cobham visits. So we have three visitors at each site. I cannot remember an occasion when all ten Councillors turned up.
Perhaps before you vote you might like to ask your favoured candidates whether they intend to turn up for site visits if they are on the planning committee.
Next Monday, Thames Street Warehouse will be on the agenda again to confirm compliance with conditions.
