Alton is now represented on the following key East Hants District Council committees :
Dean Phillips, Robert Saunders, Glynis Watts (3 out of 12)
Development Policy Panel:
Melissa Maynard, David Orme, Glynis Watts (3 out of 8)
David Orme (1 out of 12) and as reserve Melissa Maynard (1 out of 3)
However, the future of the Sports Centre may be handled by the Communities Panel, on which we are not represented.
The Alton Society has been prominent amongst a number of groups who have pressed for this correction to the previous anomaly which meant the largest and most historic centre of population in the District was not represented, at this time of vital strategic planning decisions, on crucial committees.
