Robin Bennett of Ludlow writes that the council won't listen
4:00pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Letters
“HAVE a say” in the imminent closure of Coder Road Refuse Facility, Advertiser, September 26, will sadly make little difference to Shropshire Council’s bonfire of community services. It is the inevitable outcome of their current dedication to abandoning any pretence of continuing local government's proud tradition of community service as we once knew it.
In this case it means that climate change (and carbon reduction) does not matter to them, with a string of initiatives that started immediately after their election with closing the cardboard house-to-house collection; cancelling the contract with Ludlow’s brilliant and innovative bio-digester among many other policy developments.
There is no point in ‘having a say’ when they are not listening.
It all adds to the rapidly growing sense of living with this deliberate disingenuousness that has so quickly undermined any sense of public trust in the level of care from current councillors.
