Public Consultation

1.2 Consultation

A consultation event took place at Greenfield Primary School on Thurs 14th January 2016.  The consultation process was split into two sessions, one for parents of pupils, staff and school governors, with the second session open to the public for comments on the proposals.  At each session plans, images and other information were available for viewing (see Appendix A), together with the Council and Unity Partnership representatives to answer any questions.
