The UN remind CEC that the Workshops process is important

Body: 

Lelsey Hinds the Tram Trasina has said on a number of occasions recently that faceless officials should not be allowed to create policy especially because councillors, the elected representatives, abrogate their responsibilities in this area..

This release shows an example of how officers in effect created a policy of non-cooperation where the intention of councillors had been one of cooperation and consultation. 

A woeful document was produced that purported to be a report to councillors- in the Light of Councillor Hinds comments it may be time for it to be withdrawn and a properly consultative report produced---one, like the recent Aarhu Convention Compliance Committee that highlights the importance of the Workshops process, is produced with input from all sides--especially the people who did all the work in their spare time and evenings.
