OSC refers car park charges decision back to cabinet.

The problems with the St Neots Conservative Councillors rumbles on. The decision by the Cabinet to impose these charges at the Riverside Car Park has been called in by an Overview and Scrutiny Committee (OSC). This toothless body has sent this decision back to the Cabinet for reconsideration. 

The Cabinet has also received a report from Officers setting out what the changes the OSC is proposing including the loss of income of £37,000. This gives the Cabinet food for thought in taking the decision as the loss of income will mean the Cabinet would need to look for cuts elsewhere.

I feel this should be something the OSC should have taken into account when taking there decision. Instead of just sending back the decision, the OSC should have come up with ways to pay for this loss of income.
