Outsiders banned from Woodley meetingsBy Jon Nurse

A town centre team voted emphatically against involving people from outside Woodley in its meetings.
A motion proposing Woodley Town Centre Management Initiative be open to all ‘local’ residents and traders, rather than just those from Woodley, was crushed by seven votes to one last Wednesday.
Objectors warned the change could open the floodgates for countless people to come to the meeting with an agenda.
Members agreed the initiative’s executive should review its constitution and consider a protocol for visitors to attend meetings.
