Neighbourhood Working

The council is moving towards Neighbourhood Working. It has moved together refuse collection and street cleaning into a neighbourhood team. The Odd Down team is headed by Bill Walter.

This is a good thing as it should allow co-ordination of action of several parts of the council rather than each team operating in isolation.

It is just sad that just as the Council starts to bring Neighbourhood Working for lots of its services, the Conservative executive has abolished the Neighbourhood Working decision making that used to exist, local decisions made locally no more.
