Public participation is the process by which an organization consults with interested or affected individuals, organizations, and government entities before making a decision. Public participation is two-way communication and collaborative problem solving with the goal of achieving better and more acceptable decisions. Public participation prevents or minimizes disputes by creating a process for resolving issues before they become polarized. Other terms sometimes used are ‘public involvement,’ ‘community involvement,’ or ‘stakeholder involvement.’
So … According to Mr Francois du Toit (at CAM) there was public participation but they felt that it was NOT [my emphasis] necessary to inform the Estate Agents.”

Is this yet ANOTHER example of them being neither “civil” nor “servants”?
