Perhaps no one has told PCC that the unpopular and unwanted Regional Spatial Strategy has been put in the recycling bin
and a numbers game rather than building long term and settled residential neighbourhoods.
Perhaps no one has told Peterborough City Council that the unpopular and unwanted Regional Spatial Strategy has been put in the recycling bin by the new Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles?
And whilst we’re on the subject of being in denial, rubbishing those councillors (one of whom is now the Mayor) who rightly raised the subject of uncontrolled EU migration to their areas – which was on the lips of almost every voter at the General Election and put Peterborough on the nations’ front pages in April – is unlikely to solve the very real problems they identified.
To do that, needs political leadership and determination to see that our city gets a fair deal.
Our civic leaders need to make some waves if Peterborough is to prosper and emerge from recession as a destination of choice to live, work and visit.
Let’s hope they’re up to it.
