We had a turnout for the Ward Might webclave as high as a normal Ward Mote. There were a good number of questions on the City’s plans for net-zero-carbon, planning application volumes, the move of the Museum of London, and plans for the future of the City post-covid-19.
Of specific note, Deputy John Bennet notified the ward of his intention to step down as CC next March, and his desire to step down as Deputy this month. The Alderman, Sheriff Professor Michael Mainelli, appointed John Scott as Deputy, and gave thanks to John for 12 years of service as Deputy.
The slide deck for the meeting has now been posted – Broad Street Ward Might 2021.03.22 v1.0. It was noted that the virtual Ward Might had merits in showing slides and ease of attendance. Future Ward Mights might also be virtual but, all said, we do look forward to next March’s traditional Ward Mote.
