Basingstoke and Deane Councillors again discussed the proposals to increase the planned number of houses for Whitchurch and Overton as part of a scrutiny ‘call-in’ by Cllr Keith Watts, and supported by a number of other Councillors.
On Thursday evening, the Borough’s Planning and Infrastructure Overview and Scrutiny Committee was examining whether the matter had been handled correctly with all issues being covered.
A report on the meeting will follow in due course but in brief, around a dozen members of the public from Whitchurch and Overton addressed the meeting on various points ranging from querying the democratic process, to the lack of consideration to local infrastructure requirements.
The questioning by the Committee’s other Councillors of Cllr Sherlock, the Cabinet member who is making the final decision, continued into the evening with the Committee finally adjourning to continue on Monday 15th April at 6.30pm.
