Another Conservative stealth tax on St Neots.

In the minutes of the Cabinet meeting held on 22nd April 2010, the Cabinet decided to give an opinion on who should provide and maintain play areas. 
This is another push by the Conservatives to get the Town/Parish and others to pick up the expenses so the Conservatives at HDC can trumpet their next low council tax rise. Nothing here about talking to the Town/Parish Councils. Just another decision from on high.

HDC is in such a financial state it needs to push services and responsibilities down to the Town/Parish Councils. That has to be a given. There are ways of doing this. What is needed is for HDC to come clean and talk with the Town and Parish Councils. They haven't and they won't. So we are going to get HDC forcing onto the Towns and Parish services it cannot afford to run. HDC decides and everyone else has to pick up the pieces.
