It shouldn't (and i wouldn't want it to) make your council tax higher, as you know the Conservative lead
government has frozen council tax for a second year and Conservative councils charge £114 less for a
band D property than a Lib Dem Council in the first place.
As for the cost, there are a few ways we can pay for this. for one Conservatives have took a 10% reduction in their allowances,
if every councilor did that we could use that money. Also, another post on here has talked about reducing the number of
Councilors from 3 to 2 per ward or we could work with the new local TV channel that Ofcom
are working on.http://www.public-i.info/
is the company most councils (like Brentwood Council) use to live stream their meetings.
Good idea (though it could also turn out to be an effective cure for insomnia
Btw, Carl, last week on another thread you wrote 'Marple North did a survey recently, it showed two-thirds where against and one-third for another supermarket in Marple.'
I asked you about the survey: whether you could tell us more about it? Who conducted it, how it was done, the size and profile of the sample, etc? Also, about 'Marple North' - does that mean Marple North Conservative Association?
You said you'd get back to us on this, but you haven't yet - any news?
I do apologies for that, i did contact Annette and haven't had the figures back as yet, i will ask again and post when i get them.
i wish i could give them to you right now, however i was not involved in the survey and only have the headline at the moment.
