Transparency, Taylor and Howell

Richard Taylor's blog carries an account of the recent East Area committee meeting. While much of local government can be characterised as being "as dull-as-ditchwater" this report shows how locally elected folk are trying to get things done for residents... even if the police have not yet worked out that they are accountable to the public.

"Cllr Howell has been pushing for an evidenced based approach, with speed surveys (conducted by automated black boxes on streetlights) conducted before and after action is taken by the police. Cllr Howell expressed concern that a plan agreed between city councillors, council officers and the police had not been acted upon."
