More details from petition creator

Mirroring the,Planning Code, it should be modelled on the recommendations of the Nolan Committee and contain sections on training,the lobbying of and by councillors, attendance at public meetings, disclosure of contact with applicants and objectors, officer reports, legal representation and determination of applications. In addition, sections on minimum standards of evidence; and the compulsory deferral to Public Inquiry where a decision goes against the Officer’s recommendation or Council Policy. The Code should be drawn up in consultation with relevant user groups including the Trail Riders Fellowship and the Surrey Byways User Group; and be implemented by the start of 2012.
