Contrary to what we have discussed previously I think perhaps that Hoylake Community Planning Forum are not necessarily logged as a statutory consultee [which is a good thing]
If you look at the relevant bit of the government website you’ll see this
[CLiK-2-LiNK] .gov.uk – guidance/consultation
[see text grab below]
Statutory consultees – where there is a requirement set out in law to consult a specific body, who are then under a duty to respond providing advice on the proposal in question.
Non statutory consultees where there are planning policy reasons to engage other consultees who – whilst not designated in law – are likely to have an interest in a proposed development.
I’m happy for us to be the later as this makes more sense
We should not be in the situation where we have a legal duty to respond as that would be too onerous
Though I suspect we are currently seen as the same status as a Public Consultee
Public consultation – including consultation with neighbouring residents and community groups.
