Is it time to scrap our lo­cal coun­cils?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

IT IS such a shame that this ap­peal was lost for the vil­lage of Chal­font St Peter, and par­tic­u­larly its school­child­ren. Un­for­tu­nately it was pretty much a for­gone con­clu­sion be­cause to have up­held the ap­peal [against build­ing on the Holy Cross site] would have been far too anti-es­tab­lish­ment.

It ap­pears that yet again Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil (CDC) was sham­bolic. It is all very well to say the mem­bers have now left, pre­sum­ably on pen­sions paid for by the ratepay­ers, but this is the sec­ond time CDC has put this vil­lage in a de­plorable sit­u­a­tion; this first ob­vi­ously be­ing ‘The Precinct’.

How much longer do the res­i­dents have to put up be­ing rep­re­sented by an un­ac­count­able, ir­re­spon­si­ble dis­trict coun­cil? Surely the time has come for all three dis­trict coun­cils
