Quote about our future
‘Genuine consultation is where community consultation is undertaken prior to making a decision and reasons explained for that resolution. Such a procedure would instil greater community confidence, promote general awareness, and allow for an increased participation rate from all age groups. Our future is bright when we work as one.’
