LMP reps attended the Strategic Migration Board on 14th December (See “How does LMP influence things?“) where a number of important policy papers were discussed in some detail. We’ll circulate the papers from this meeting as soon as we are gioven permission to do so. For the time being, here are some of the papers discussed – that are already in the public domain.
The first was a fascinating overvview of the draft Joint Strategic Assessment for Leeds (formerly known as the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment).
