BIN DEBATE RAGES ON

A scene in Brockenhurst this morning… which I don't think was set up by supporters of wheelie bins!

There are arguments both for and against the use of wheelie bins, this is definitely one factor that supports change.

I opened up my newspaper today and read a letter from a Mr Bright, absolutely slating the Conservative controlled New Forest District Council for trying to impose wheelie bins without any proper, meaningful, consultation.

His comments were all the more powerful because the gentleman concerned is a former Conservative Town, District and County Councillor!

Personally, I think that the thing that should be binned is the totally inadequate on-line consultation that the Conservatives are using. It will only reach a small number of householders and the leading questions it contains provides no objective information about what people really think.

How much better to put a paper questionnaire through every door in the New Forest, without leading questions, in the form of a survey that gives a proper indication of what people want? You can then make an informed decision, balancing people's wishes against the economics / practicality of collecting household waste.

It is an issue that affects everybody. People have different views. At least allow them to have a proper say, instead of cheating them in this manner?
