A copy of a first draft letter and details of the Corporate Plan 2016-2020 had been circulated to all members. The Chairman briefed members and after discussion it was agreed that the draft letter would be sent to Councillor Stock, as follows:-

 

“Thank you for your letter of 19th September.

Brightlingsea Town Council supports the initiatives shown on the Corporate Plan for 2020-24 with the exception of the proposed ‘North Essex Garden Communities’. However, it would have been particularly helpful if there could have been a summary of how successful the previous 2016-20 Plan was and whether there have been ‘lessons learned’ in the process of implementing the Plan.

Perhaps this could be incorporated into future consultations.”
