Timeline – the story so far

Minutes of this meeting

Councillors and the public have the right to ask questions on any subject at a full Council meeting.
On 18 April 2016, a considerable number of questions were asked by members and allies of the PSPnO Campaign, some directly about the PSPO, some about broader waterways issues.


There is a lot of paperwork in relation to this meeting:
