If a Town Council agrees a "Strategic Plan" for the Town, should this plan be subject to public consultation?

After many years of requests, the Town Council has drafted a Strategic Plan.  When asked the Clerk has said that currently she has no view on whether there should be a process of public consultation on the Plan.

Logically, yes, legally, not necessarily.

A transparent council would conduct the public/stakeholder consultation about a year before the "has drafted a strategic plan" stage, so I fear your boat may have sailed.
