One of the speeches from the public was by Barry Curwen of SOS. He has been promised a written reply. The speech is here: Question to Overview and Scrutiny Committee 28.03.13
Another speaker from the floor was Dr Margaret Hall of the Campaign for Rural England. She pointed out that, as actual population increase had been much less than predicted by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), far fewer houses than estimated, would in fact be needed.
The Minutes of this O&S Meeting will be well worth reading, particularly regarding issues of the “Five Year Land Supply” .
