Pedestrian Gate survey update

The outcome of the Pedestrian Gate survey has proved unreliable, as there appears to have been a considerable amount of irregular voting. Even when we strip out these votes, we cannot be confident of the accuracy of the survey.

Given that this issue has proved to be quite contentious in the estate, the residents association believe that this matter may be more complex than catered for by a simple majority vote.

Therefore, we have agreed to let the issue rest for now, and believe it will be better addressed at the AGM in the summer via an open forum.
