    'The one about schools'.
    This map shows the proposed primary schools and secondary schools in VERY APPROXIMATE locations.
    Cllr Uttley literally just put them in the housing allocation area to which they relate. It's like pin the tail on the donkey when you don't cheat!

This is because this housing site and all that goes with it is proposed for after 2038 so isn't even in this Local Plan period. There is an awful lot of time for this allocation to change and so it should therefore be consumed with lots of salt!
