I agree witht eh concept above.

I still believe that the Council does need some flexibility to manage a
process and timelines - taking into account the complexity of an issue,
holiday periods, natural disasters etc.  I think the current PDP
timelines are unrealistic with the requirement for wide consultation.
I would however be fine with a time limit (e.g 6 months for any given

I also agree with Ross and Tom that we need to have done much of the
background information seeking etc before we start the formal PDP.
