"Consultation" - Brighton and Hove City Council-style

How big a notice do you need to announce the closure of a school?

And how big a notice do you need to "consult" the community about the fact that a wealthy individual is going to take ownership of the local school and its accompanying community sports facilities?

These closely typed A4 notices were put up in the CAR PARK of Portslade Community College on the last day of last term. They give local people 6 weeks to object to the proposal to close their school and open an academy in its place. Two weeks of that was taken up with the Xmas break anyway.

Hands up if you think the Council are really trying here!
