Update - 14/03/17
The four week public notice period has now ended in which two objections to the proposal were received. Mr Gough (Cabinet Member for Education and Health Reform) considered the objections. As the issues raised in the objections had already been considered by Mr. Gough when making his decision of 24 January 2017, he has decided his decision should stand.
Update – 08/02/17

Mr. Roger Gough, Cabinet Member for Education and Health Reform, considered the responses to the consultation and agreed that a public notice should be issued.  The public notice, published in the Folkestone and Hythe Express on Wednesday 08 February 2017 can be found below, together with the complete proposal.  The closing date for sending in written responses supporting, objecting or commenting on the proposal is 11am, 08 March 2017.
