The Economist today reports on David Cameron's recent visit to Manchester:
"The champion of localism pledged to use his office at the head of the central government to help voters overcome local woes"
"These local officials are accountable, they work for the council, he said, with some vehemence. Go and see your councillors, he recommended. “If it is not working, I’ll help you. I’ll bash down the walls of the council if I have to.”
Ok, in this instance he was talking to a parent of disabled children but nonetheless but the sentiment is the same no matter what the subject. Both local council officers and councillors are accountable to local people and is about time that Broadland District Council took this on board and stopped following the aspirations of certain members without listening to local residents.
Meanwhile, let Council leader, Simon Woodbridge or the Chief Executive, Colin Bland know about any concerns you have. You can email them:
