Thank you Frank, I wasn’t suggesting it was a social event. I think ‘away day’ was a poor choice of reference on my part. A meeting to discuss and refresh the town strategy is the aim.
We have several working groups that do not have a published agendas or invitations for the public to attend - is this not correct?
Our working groups meet, discuss, bring the results back to council and vote on them. Could we create a working group (of the whole council) to discuss the town strategy, task a new draft, circulate to the public and then bring a paper to the next meeting to vote it in?
Our committees are open to the public with an agenda, but not working groups (although they could be I suppose).
