Councillor J Amos then proposed a further amendment namely – ‘That  whilst agreeing with the amendment that the Public Consultation Document as set out at Paragraph 9.14 must include the Pros and Cons of all Options including the proposed third word point that is neither of these.  This would give the opportunity of saying if you do go for neither of these, these are the consequences and the same goes for the others as well.  We can tell the public this is what is going to happen if you vote for this Option or this Option and depending on what they come back with then we can vote, giving the final vote’.
