Tony Flaig recently asked the
question, "What have the Tories done for us?" As a resident of Dane Valley he answered his own question as "jack". He highlighted the fire damaged site in Millmead Road with photos on his post, and complained that the three Conservative councillors had done nothing to sort matters out.
In comments on the post Cllr. Simon Moores said:
"Quite the opposite of 'Jack' Tony and rather more than you think.Clearing a privately-owned site doesn't happen with a magic wand as much as you or I would like it to. It's a frequently lengthy and convoluted process as this is not public property.
I have the same problem in Westgate with the remains of the bungalow in Ethelbert Sq. A final notice has been served on the owners of the site after 18 months of orders being ignored!"
An accurate well informed opinion, indeed possibly an "expert" one?
18 months might be how long it takes a Conservative to get round to taking action, but Labour's candidate in Dane Valley Sandra Hart took just over 18 days.
The top photo shows her taking details on 23rd September and the photo below is earlier today showing the clean up of the site starting. 22 days not 548 days. That's 24 times slower!
It is a mystery as to what "rather more than you might think" really means.
