Once again the district council is keen to engage local residents in future planning of Honiton, or so they say.
Yet again they have already made up their minds, and we all know they will ignore any suggestion by the taxpayers. Cranbrook is typical of this - 16,000 objections and they will build twice as many houses as in the original planning application.
I agree with Tony Simpson, if EDDC wishes to obtain the views of the taxpayers it should send a questionnaire to all the households and not rely on email, and then they only received 144 responses, of which 25 per cent wanted an increase in car parking fees, hardly representative of the electorate.
To reduce the burden on the taxpayers, is there a politician brave enough to say we have too high expenses, wages and pensions and we should make reductions?
