Cllr Andrew Mackness learns a new language

My good mate, Cllr Andrew Mackness, is a top guy and a really hard working and effective councillor. If I ever found myself in the trenches, I could think of no-one I would sooner have alongside me; even if for no other reason than his catering company make good sandwiches.

However, I was amused to read a series of Tweets this morning, demonstrating the Cllr Mackness has learnt a new language. That language which baffles 99% of voters but is beloved of local government employees and some councillors: Acronymitis.

Here is the best of many examples

Can anyone tell me what it actually means ?
