£2 Million Local plan and the Cost could be more.

Today 2 members of the Hollins Cross Farm team talked with the Burnley Express.
As concerned Residents who have been met with a "Wall of Silence" from Burnley Council it was seen as necessary to demand that the Residents of Burnley are shown this Local Plan 2016 that has so far cost us £2million before the Local elections this summer - the council's reply is -
“As we’ve said before, our key concern is carrying out all the work we need to do in a professional and methodical manner, and ensuring that we get the best outcome for the whole borough.
“We will announce the dates of the decision making meetings as soon as they are set.”
This is the same old rhetoric from the Council - this Local Plan was seemingly finished last November ready for Publishing 8/9th Dec - since then excuse after excuse trying to hide behind "BuzzWord" phrases that hide the truth about incompetence.
They Claim they have technical difficulties they need to address - this means the people employed to do the surveys of land, sat at a desk and did "Desktop Surveys from out of date information" then charged top rates for work back to the Council.
We the general public are being "Ripped Off". Now they have to do all the work again and this time investigate - Please Burnley Council Prove us wrong.
Burnley’s much-vaunted Local Plan – which aims to set out future development frameworks for the borough – has been put on hold after councillors were threatened with legal action.
