Councillor Steve Carr has asked us to share the following excerpt from Barton in Fabis Parish Council to Notts Conservative Leader Kay Cutts.
“Our attention has been drawn to the discussion at the above meeting on the adoption of the Minerals Local Plan at which you made a number of false and misleading statements regarding the potential site at Shelford when challenged about your role in removing that site from the Minerals Local Plan.
In particular, the statement you made that “the applicant for the Shelford application did not put in an application. It was not considered because they did not ask to have it considered” is, as you will know, entirely false.
Council Officers have stated in writing (31/3/21) that they “can confirm Brett Aggregates submitted the Shelford site as part of the call for sites exercise in early 2018 and that it hasn’t been withdrawn since”.
The only conclusion that can be drawn from your willingness to mislead and make such false statements is that the description … regarding your role in influencing the withdrawal of the Shelford site and replacing it with the site at Barton in Fabis is indeed correct.”
