would it be cynical of me to say that they're holding a consultation to decide how little they can get away with regarding heritage and the concerns of residents and as a token gesture to the Council rather than a genuine attempt to engage with the issues?

yes it would be cynical but could be accurate. However, if you know anything of Sir Terry Farrell's philosophy behind his work you will be greatly encouraged and enthusiastic about this opportunity to engage in the review of the master plan for this important historic site.
