  1. Bexley are keeping their "public consultation" rather hidden since it opened. I emailed the consultation team to ask to participate and await a response in 5-10 working days. As regular researcher and a Kent Online Parish Clerk (my blog is http://downeopc.blogspot.co.uk/) I wish to participate when and if Bexley get around to inclusion on their website for a consultation which opened on 21 October.
