Privatisation and Profiteering

Hot on the heels of Cornwall Council's arrogant decision to ignore elected councillors and press on with the privatisation of public services, it seems that the cabinet also wants to profit from oter services that it currently provides to communities.

The cabinet has decided that it might be a good idea to charge local communities to manage any traffic issues. Charges are proposed for simple things like traffic regulation orders, assessing the group's traffic management plans and providing signange.

A small community group, wanting to organise a small fete could end up paying hundreds of pounds to the council for the privilege.

But don't worry we're all in this big society together!
