Our Council's Reply to Qs email

Received this from one of the Brent People we met with 4.59am:

"Thank you for your email.

From the minutes, the majority of the questions are based on the mitigation agreements. We are currently still in working out the details.

I am proposing that we once again meet to go through the questions you have, the agreed mitigation and how we can ensure residents voices are heard. 

Can I suggest we meet in the 2 weeks after the election as by that time we should have a details and also council business is not restricted by election rules. We are currently trying to find a date that all relevant officers can attend and once we have that I will let you know.

Kind regards 

Cllr Shama Tatler
Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Growth, Employment and Skills
Fryent Ward Councillor
London Borough of Brent"
