A response from Buckinghamshire Environment Action Group
BEAG shares the concerns of our Unitary Authority, Buckinghamshire Council, regarding the legitimacy of this consultation, in particular their statement, “It is absolutely essential that the public consultation is accurate and reflects the generally accepted legal principles that consultees have sufficient information in order to respond sensibly.”
BEAG evidences how this consultation falls well short of the mark. Read the full BEAG response.
We urge DLUHC to reassess the Arc’s rationale, viability, governance and potential impacts in the light of our comments and those of others, such as Buckinghamshire Council. The department should then return to the public with more democratic, informed and realistic proposals and a more inclusive, honest, balanced and meaningful consultation.
