For your information, there was some confusion about upcoming WCC meetings, explained on the Save The Parks site, which means that what we thought was going to be a Housing Delivery meeting on Monday 15 July will now be a Cabinet meeting with a very short agenda. For your information, in addition to the Cabinet meeting there will also be a full Council meeting on Wednesday 17 July at 7pm. The agenda will be available 9 July. The next Housing meeting will be on Wednesday 18 September at 10am.
