here, and still work here can’t af­ford the houses that are be­ing built, and don’t qual­ify for the par­town­er­ship deals ei­ther! When will the coun­cil re­alise they need to fix what they have be­fore they add to it

PUz­zlED ap­palling lack of in­fra­struc­ture and the need for new hous­ing, or ev­ery­one will con­tinue to suf­fer a re­duced qual­ity of life - The Tory ad­min­is­tra­tion that has been run­ning this city for as long as any­one can re­mem­ber (be it led by Peach or Cer­este) have presided over the pro­vi­sion of cut-price ser­vices while the well-heeled have paid min­i­mal coun­cil tax and can buy their own ac­cess to pri­vate ed­u­ca­tion, pri­vate health­care, pri­vate sports fa­cil­i­ties etc.

The coun­cil is go­ing to need to make cuts to the bare-bones in­fra­struc­ture we have. i.e. it’s only go­ing to get worse.

And this isn’t down to im­mi­gra­tion (that is merely a cri­sis which has ex­posed the city’s weak­nesses), but be­cause the coun­cil­lors have had any­thing more to of­fer the elec­torate than low coun­cil tax and a load of old blar­ney.
