Stop blam­ing each other

It is typ­i­cal that Pe­ter­bor­ough’s cur­rent politi­cians are more in­ter­ested in as­sign­ing blame for a prob­lem than seek­ing to mit­i­gate the prob­lem - Pe­ter­bor­ough needs an ad­e­quate and bal­anced hous­ing pro­vi­sion (Pe­ter­bor­ough Tele­graph 27/09/16).

In the un­likely event that the city coun­cil has a sur­plus of three bed houses, then al­low mul­ti­ple oc­cu­pancy in them.

This could house sev­eral home­less at a time!

This would be bet­ter for the res­i­dents and cheaper than Trav­elodge.

More likely, it is a case of sim­ply not enough hous­ing, again this can be mit­i­gated by al­low­ing mo­bile homes to be lo­cated on some of the re­dun­dant land scat­tered around Pe­ter­bor­ough, again bet­ter and cheaper than Trav­elodge!

Cam­bridgeshire coun­cils have re­sisted nearly all such in­no­va­tions in ser­vice provi- sion. An elected Mayor from next May will have an op­por­tu­nity to bring fresh ideas to mit­i­gate, if not solve many of the ser­vice pro­vi­sions Peter Dawe Mayor can­di­date Pe­ter­bor­ough and Cam­bridgeshire
