I managed to resolve the issue - which turns out bcos I had 2 back2back
columnset definitions. So instead, I combined them into 1 and the result
was ok.

*Before (leads to blank page or page with symmetrical columns):*

\definecolumnset[2col][n=2, distance=3.5mm, page=no]

\definecolumnset[3col][n=3, page=yes]



*After (gets the desired result):*

\definecolumnset[summary][nleft=2, nright=3, distance=3.5mm, page=no]
