Hi Mike Not sure where you have been but the petition was completed and handed to Basildon Council in September prior to the Development Control and Traffic Management's decision to refuse the planning application. The paper petition had 5196 signatures and there was quite a lot of publicity. The petition and its wording was included in the Basildon Council report and no one else has challenged it. The electronic petition with 600+ signatures was also submitted.
The post re the plotlands was in October 2012 following Tony Ball's attendance at our meeting and the matter was raised again when Mr. Ball came to a meeting round about March of this year. It is a pity that you did not come to either of those meetings so that you could raise your questions at the time.
I am currently in Austria and won't be back for a week or so. I cannot access the posts made prior to June 2013. I am not sure why but I have left a message for the administrator. It may be that these were stored following the recent forum upgrade.
I suggest that whatever the problem you have with the petition is that you either message me direct using the forum. Go to the members section and click the message tab. You can also email me on firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, as we are not arranging any meetings until the new year that you come along to see us at the Benbow Table Top Sale & Coffee Morning on Saturday 9th November 10.00 to 2.00 pm when we will have a table with a laptop showing people how to use the forum - it is always best to speak face to face
Best wishes Rose
What element of the petition wording do you think is not true?
