Today I had a council meeting.
We have set ourselves a target of August to find a partner for running the country park - there are thousands of signatures on a petition to save the park - I've had letters from hundreds of people - they care.
The words of the original motion say we have to find a "likely" solution by then... everyone who has ever bought or sold a house knows that negotations take a long time. The council is in the middle of loads of discussions with people from the National Trust right down to local trusts. I'm learning lots. We wont have a signed document by August, I believe we will have a likely solution.
But today the opposition stir. They say we are behind timetable and refuse to hear the original motion. That is misleading the public. I am cross.
