So the Sec of State issued a holding direction late yesterday afternoon meaning the plan could not be adopted. Must say I do agree with EHDC that it was rather late in the day to notify it of the decision.

Stephen McPartland has clearly learned how to play the system, having previously managed to get the Stevenage Local Plan put on hold.

Holding direction now lifted (thanks to Julian Bond for the heads-up)

Formal vote on adoption now scheduled for Tuesday 23rd October (the only thing that isn't a foregone conclusion is the number of councillors who will vote against)

Possibly some abstentions but can't see any against at this late stage.

EHDC District Plan

The vote on adoption of the EHDC District Plan is tomorrow night. 18:30 for 19:00, Tuesday 23 Oct, EHDC Offices, Pegs Lane, Hertford.

It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that the councillors will vote for adoption. But you might still want to come and say hello to them.

Here are the agendas.

It will be webcast here.

I always watch online - like to see who is active or just making up the numbers. Will say, however, the web cast is excellent when you consider HCC doesn't even publish minutes let alone think the public would be interested in a web cast; might be a sign of arrogance?

If you can and know your councillors by sight, try and spot who's missing, and how those present vote. I'm expecting a high turnout and only a very few abstentions and votes against.

Do they put up who voted which way afterwards, i.e. is there an official record? (I looked though some minutes and they only say things like "it was passed")
