    Sounds interesting, any way of having input of what the Council are planning is very welcome as many of us Ratepayers are feeling very disillusioned at the moment.

    Take the Green Waste for instance, what a farce that turned out to be,
    by the time I could apply it was over subscribed and was told it was too late and could not get it fully reduced by paying in advance (even though it was extended due to computer crashes).

    Goodness knows how many elderly folk with no computer knowledge will suffer by the council assuming we are all a ‘Wiz’ at computer technology.
