Lack of response to Ecotown questions – Simon Galton speaks out

by simongalton on 12 September, 2008

Having waited patiently since 28thJuly for a response from the Housing minister Ms. Caroline Flint to the questions he had presented, Cllr Simon Galton has highlighted the apparent lack of organization from the Minister. 

Cllr Galton stated: “As always seems to be the case with this Eco-Town process the local people are completely ignored – of course I am disappointed but I am not surprised. I had hoped to ask these questions formally at the minister’s visit to the proposed site but I was informed I could ask one and send the others in for a response in 7 to 10 days. Well I have waited exactly 28 working days and I haven’t yet had so much as a note to.”

He added: “The complete silence has annoyed me simply because it looks so unprofessional. I work alone to deal with issues and questions from constituents and I try as hard as I can to be transparent and efficient. How hard can it be to answer 9 questions when Ms Flint has an Army of Civil Servants? It’s a further evidence of how you cannot run a local housing beauty contest from Whitehall.”
