I was at the Area 3 meeting at Fulwell Library on Wednesday 18th November (remember that date) and, as usual the Councillors were blathering away, wringing their hands and bemoaning the loss of Green Space in the Borough and the encroachment of the Parking charges across our green and pleasant spaces.
In a pile on the table at the back, and scattered on some chairs, was this survey:
In the middle of my usual berating the Councillors for their spurious concepts of "public consultation", I mentioned the survey. They were clearly unaware of it - I had to go to the back table and distribute it amongst the Area Committee.
While I praised the Council for embarking on such a survey, I also pointed out that, at the end of the survey, along the bottom, the words: "Please return by Friday 30th October......"
But then, that's what passes for "Consultation" with this Borough Council, isn’t it?. [[What's the bloody point, honestly?]].
