AS the ward member for Huntingdon West, I share Allan Brocklebank's disappointment regarding the consultation for the Huntingdon West Action Plan (Letters, June 25).
As he correctly points out, it offered residents three options, one of which did not include relocating the college to Hinchingbrooke, but two weeks before the consultation finished a decision was taken by the council to relocate the college.
I made it clear during the full council meeting on June 25 that this is not an acceptable way for the council to conduct a public consultation.
As a result, the council will be running a new consultation about improved road access to the new college site at Hinchingbrooke, which is a source of great concern to local residents. Improved road access must be a pre-condition to the new college being built, although I am still disappointed that it will be moved from its current location.
