Cheerio Commission?

The News Letter (not online) claims to have details of the Strategic Review of Parades preliminary recommendations. Notifications in future will be sent to local councils who will then inform relevant parties ie police, community safety, residents (similar to the south african model). Supplemented by a new arbitration panel appointed by OFM/DFM with a shift to more transparent procedures and decision-making. There will also be some broader forum for parade organisers and objectors to discuss issues around the parades but no future for the Parades Commission.
