Council Loses Housing Fight

The legal dispute between the City Council and housing developers is covered in the Cambridge News today.

The councillors believe that they are not bound by the time limits they themselves agreed to for using private cash to fund new homes. While it would have been 'nice' for the developer to give us money after the deadline, you can see why no sane business would want to be at the beck-and-call of councillors demanding money many years after a project has been completed.

The main point is the inability of the council to use the windfall cash it acquired.

The argument, as usual, sees ordinary people caught in the bureaucratic fight.
