Addressed specifically to Wigan Borough Council,
I address this specifically to Wigan Borough Council as that is the name of the sovereign council described on the cover of the local borough constitution. If Wigan Borough Council are better served freedom of information requests at another address than this then please do provide that physical and email address, and name/position of contact, so I can contact them specifically.
I note that in pre-2103 copies of the old format constitution that United Nations Agenda 21 policies had been adopted in the constitution. I note that in the current modular form of constitution that I can see no reference to United Nations Agenda 21 policies.
1. I will require it confirmed why the adoption of Agenda 21 policies/protocols has been expressly omitted from the new modular local constitution?
2. I will require copies of information held confirming the current local constitutional position regarding the adoption and observance of United Nations Agenda 21 policies/protocols. I will happily list these policies for you if required.
3. I will require a most accurate budget cost for each year since 2010 for the borough and its inhabitants complying with United Nations Agenda 21 policies/protocols or such other name(s) that may have been adopted to replace it. If 'Agenda 21' has been dropped or replaced by another name(s) then please provide details of that/those, listing those names by which Agenda21 policies/protocols are applied.
4. I will require copies of the council meeting agenda, resolution, and minutes whereby the council body voted to adopt Agenda 21 policies/protocols (and for any replacement names for those polices/protocols) into the constitution.
Can you provide a link to where the public can inspect the new constitution online? It is now proving difficult to find.
