This morning's meeting to put the draft recommendations from committee to the Corporate Director and the Cabinet member went very smoothly and was over in 45 minutes. So now all that needs doing is to write a report! Fortunately it's not my job to actually write it, having agreed what should go in it. In a fortnight's time we'll run the meeting as an open seminar to start with and then the formal committee meeting to finalise the report. All being well it'll go as smoothly as yesterday's - good discussion and then consensus.
The rest of the day was spent on family things, until it was time to go to a meeting of Egglescliffe & Eaglescliffe council. The meetings of the Parish council are so different to those of the borough council - no party politics, just 13 members and an officer wanting to get the best for the people of the area. Sometimes we disagree on the way forward but not nastily. Still, it wouldn't do for all the world to be the same would it.
