BOROUGH GREEN COMMUNITY WEBSITE
The plot thickens - after Senior Planning Officer Ian Bailey's sudden resignation just before Christmas, we now have the sudden suspension of Cllr David Lettington, Cabinet Member for Planning. He and Ian were the driving force behind Borough Green Garden City, and the rest of the deeply flawed Local Plan. It may well be completely unrelated to the Local Plan, but who else do they have with the experience and knowledge to take on the role? This definitely plays right into our hands. I have offered the TMBC Leader my services as Cabinet Member for Planning 😊 .
Christmas Lights - could this be the last year that we see Borough Green's magnificent Christmas Lights? The lights are funded by public donations, and grants from the Parish Council andTMBC. But TMBC are in dire straights financially, and it would not be surprising if their grant was stopped. Add to that KCC Highways have now decided they want to charge us £1750 for "safety checks" and "annual permits" for the lighting columns we use, the situation will get very difficult. The money KCC want is the same as the Parish Grant or the public donations, so we will be paying again for something KCC already charges a huge amount of Council Tax. We will be fighting this robustly.
