My personal view is that the Corporation carries out consultations and then ignores residents' input- eg COLPAI.
An interesting article by a resident from the other end of the City in the latest edition of City Matters... https://www.citymatters.london/resident-engagement-hard-portsoken/
He has "absolutely no idea which of these explanations was responsible for the poor turn out of residents during the community centre consultation process. Is it a lack of interest, a lack of communication or a lack of faith? Or is it something else entirely?"
