MEMBER INVOLVEMENT IN VILLAGE GREEN APPLICATIONS

                           DISCUSSION

The purpose of this note is to aid a discussion on the issues to
inform the drafting of a report for consideration at the March
meeting.

Time Constraints

The Haltwhistle inquiry lasted 2 days, which for Beadnell took 6
days.

Is an anticipated two-day inquiry the practical maximum for
members to attend?

What happens if the estimate is wrong and the inquiry runs into a
third or even a fourth day?

Local and/or Councillors supporting one of the parties

Is a local protocol needed to provide a framework for their
involvement?

Decision-making

Should those members who have attended, convene either at the
end of the sitting, or within a few days, to make the decision?

What is the role of the independent barrister – adviser or the
person making the formal recommendation?

If there is a quorum of RoW Committee members present for the
hearing, should there be a local protocol that only those members
should participate in any future formal decision-making meetings?

There may well be other issues identified by members drawing on
their experience of the Haltwhistle application.
