Notes of meeting held at LGA House, Smith Square, Londo; Friday 15 May 2015
1. Notes of the meeting of 06 March 2015 and matters arising - The accuracy of the notes was agreed and there were no matters arising.
2. Manifesto of the parties - what implications for plan-making activities post-election? - Dave Simpson/Andy Johnson - The election result had taken a lot of people by surprise - except the BBC Exit Poll! It had been anticipated that this Network meeting would be speculating about what shape another coalition government would take. However, this was not to be and accordingly this led to a discussion solely on the implications for plan-making of the Conservative Party Manifesto.
A paper was prepared and a discussion took place.
