Council meeting to review parish decision

Kidderminster Shuttle: Council meeting to review parish decision Council meeting to review parish decision

A SPECIAL Wyre Forest District Council meeting will take place to recommend setting up another review into creating a Kidderminster Town Council.

The meeting will take place next Wednesday at 6pm at Wyre Forest House, Finepoint Way.

A report to be put before all 42 councillors will recommend asking the public for the second time whether or not it supports the creation of a town council for Kidderminster.

The meeting will consider work done by a 10-member working party set up last year when a community governance review into parishing the town was abandoned after the majority of residents responding to the consultation said they were against the idea.

The Shuttle was told at the time the review cost Charter Trustees about £9,000.

I wonder how many residents of Kidderminster would vote for a Town Council if they realised it will probably mean an extra £50-£60 added to their Council Tax bill?

The answer they got last time was obviously the "wrong" answer ...so they're going to keep asking until they get the "right" answer!!!

A prime example of why these people are held in such low regard.

This is neither wanted or needed and Cllr Ballinger & co should do what they have been elected to do.... listen to the electorate.
Time they started acting like Cllrs instead of creating more talking shops in order to inflate their ego and enlarge their portfolio.
This outdated 19th century idea has no place in the modern world.

It's no big news to learn that WFDC are a cash-strapped local authority, who have consistently turned to our existing town council's (moreover their taxpayers) to generate monies for the DC's better interests. I can only assume that a future Kidderminster Town Council will be expected to function in the same capacity as the town council in Stourport ... ie: The unknowing taxpayers will be asked to solely fund and maintain their own civic facility, leisure centre, splash-park and even public toilets - or risk losing the lot!

Before the Charter Trustees put forward the Kidderminster Town Council recommendation to the public, perhaps they should show some transparency to the community they represent by revealing what is really expected of a town council in Wyre Forest!!
