Some alternative ideas to One Barnet

The Barnet Labour Party have suggested some of the different ways we would approach administration in the Council. These are important and deliverable changes to the way the Tories are doing this now. I think consulting the public is hugely important. One of the most distressing aspects of One Barnet has been that it has been slipped under the carpet, with no overall consultations.

In addition, Cllr Geof Cooke, my colleague in Woodhouse ward, has made some important obervations about the NSCSO contract. This is a point all four of us repeatedly questioned at Budget and Performance last week, and in private too. I am simply not confident about the credibility of the guarantees.
