Tail Wagging the Dog Again?
Comment by Richard Lawton on 5th June 2019
Is this REALLY a public meeting to get community input?
Or a long, boring presentation to impose your vision on us, followed by a bit of an opportunity to comment, sort of?
The SRD hasn't got used to the idea that WE are the community. This is for our benefit, and ultimately you are there to do our bidding, not the other way around...!
The LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT was created to take control away from urban centres and give it to local people who understand local issues!
