    And if your submission is likely to go over 2000 words, than make allowance to post it to them! Excellent points highlighted by Cr Giacomo Arnott on his Facebook page. This is not just about “I can’t afford it”, Council needs to meet several criteria including community consultation. With major changes made to projects between July and November, the consultation on the revised projects was not up to scratch and came far too close to Christmas break (Deadline: 20th December!)
