Sustainable Communites Act

following an email from Steve Shaw of Unlock Democracy and Local Works, here's a copy of an email I sent to Secretary of State John Denaham.

Dear John Denham,

Residents of Brighton and Hove got fully behind the Sustainable Communities Act, with 23 proposals being received by the local panel, of which Brighton & Hove's City Council's Cabinet submitted 9 to the LGA and we are all delighted that 8 have been short-listed for negotiation with yourself as Secretary of State.

Our proposals covered a broad range of topics including allotment regulations, discretionary business rates, encouraging renewable energy, amending planning policies and setting speed limits. Brighton and Hove City Council have also taken consideration of how to use the SCA in our scrutiny process, and suggestions for future SCA proposals have come out of scrutiny panel recommendations.

Whilst this was a very worthwhile and encouraging process, achieving good community engagement, it was at times hindered by the uncertainty of when information, such as Local Spending Reports, and guidance would be published. A lot of lessons were learned by members, council officers, and local residents through using this Act, and we feel we could only improve on this in future years, reaching wider sections of our community and empowering them to make real local change.

The Sustainable Communities Act Amendment Bill is vital as it will ensure that the democratic involvement seen in the Sustainable Communities Act continues. I ask that you please do all you can to ensure the Bill receives the Parliamentary time it needs in order to become law before the General Election.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely

Cllr Vicky Wakefield-Jarrett

Once the protesters had "flooded" into the park, says Mr Wedes, he grabbed a megaphone and asked everyone to sit down in what he describes now as the "first act of occupation" but there were still fears among the crowd that they would be evicted before they had a chance to pitch their tents.

Insulin is manufactured and stored in the pancreas, which is a thin gland about 15cm (6in) long that lies crosswise behind the stomach. It's often described as being two glands in one, since in addition to making insulin it also produces enzymes that are vital for digestion of food. prices of goldwebsite design templates

And he has kissed my mouth,
But I am like a stricken bird
That cannot reach the south.
For though I know he loves me,
To-night my heart is sad;
His kiss was not so wonderful
As all the dreams I had.

I thought that Lina was going to get in trouble after she went to the rooftop, but I guess they just decided to let her go because she was new. I wonder what Doon wanted to talk to Lina about…

Congress, pursuant to the War Powers Resolution, must authorize any troop deployments longer than 60 days, although that process relies on triggering mechanisms that have never been employed, rendering it ineffectual.[20] Additionally, Congress provides a check to presidential military power through its control over military spending and regulation. While historically presidents initiated the process for going to war,[21][22] critics have charged that there have been several conflicts in which presidents did not get official declarations, including Theodore Roosevelt's military move into Panama in 1903,[21] the Korean War,[21] the Vietnam War,[21] the invasions of Grenada in 1983[23] and Panama in 1990.
