Freedom of Information request successful – Flagmarket redevelopment report open to public

Put in a Freedom of Information request to Preston City Council on Tuesday evening and they moved swiftly, releasing the report given to the Council’s City Centre Committee at the meeting on Thursday 24th January 2009.


The report, by Mike Brogan, Assistant Director (City Projects), outlines the consultation process and how the recommendation of Scheme 001 was decided upon.

It was a thorough report, detailing the consultation with the public, recommendations from English Heritage, DISC (local disability group). Interestingly, Brogan chooses to discount the online poll/consultation taken with the Lancashire Evening Post as the designs were not presented accurately. He says:

“Given the inadequacy of the presentation of the schemes in the LEP, it is considered inappropriate to take the results of the LEP vote into consideration.”

You can read the council’s response to my request and also read the full copy of the report. I’ve replied to their response by asking when the minutes of the City Centre Committee’s discussion will be published.
