Special Isolated Buttress Bridge Meeting - Sunday 7th October 2018

In June there was an announcement that the BMC Land Management Group would like to hold a special meeting to make extra assessments regarding the proposed installation of the bridge onto Isolated Buttress. 

The Meeting is to be held on Sunday 7th October 2018 in the meeting room at Bowles Rocks (same building as the bar). Please approach from the front door.
1830 - 1930: Standard Sandstone Open Meeting
1930 - 2030: Special Isolated Buttress Bridge meeting (chaired by Martin Wragg, LMG)

The BMC notes:

The LMG want to be transparent and clear about the process on October 7th and beyond, so please bear the following in mind:
  • The format of the Isolated Buttress part of the meeting will be that the HRMG will briefly remind the room how it came to its decision, after which the floor will be open to anyone to speak.
  • The LMG will only consider any new compelling arguments that haven’t already been discussed, given that the HRMG have already debated at length the merits of both sides of the argument.
  • Only four members of the LMG are able to attend the meeting so the final decision will be reserved until a teleconference can be held in the week following the Open Meeting with more LMG members.
  • A decision will be taken over the teleconference, following an update on the meeting from those present and necessary discussion.

All are invited to attend and comment in person concerning the decision-making process concerning access on and off Isolated Buttress.

UPDATE: Please note that the open meeting on Sunday 7th October is now NOT in the bar as advertised, but in a meeting room in the same building - best to approach from the front door.
