Local stuff

Monday started early with a meeting at Southampton City Council. Adrian Vinson (Leader) had invited John Denham, Alan Whitehead and myself to discuss West Quay 3. The meeting had started as a private briefing but the Echo at the end of last week soon put paid to that as they revealed a number of the plans.

Basically the situation is that the development of West Quay 3 (as preferred by the Council) seems to hinge upon the provision of a casino.

Now what was I saying last week?

Then a dash to Eastleigh to discuss a number of issues - mostly planning but also an update on more strategic issues such as what's happening with the local health trusts, Southampton airport and a number of other issues.
