All Council's under their constitution normally give a right for those living, working or STUDYING in the district to have the issue subject to the petition debated by full council and a decision notice issued. 5,000 petition seems to be the required number..
This is I think the first time the provision has been used..
You might find it useful..
cheers for that ill make that known to the relevant people...
Update...hows this for sheer ugliness...the Basildon council being aware that the petition was going to go way beyond 5000 signitures athus triggering a full council meeting have suspened all council meeting till further notice...this so they dont have to debate the issue in full!!!! Is this the type of despot tactics we expect from local leaders in GREAT BRITAIN?
Can members contact Basildon council and let them know what they think of this tactic and the eviction...can you pass on the address to all you know and on other forums/sites
