Tory Council Shamed

I am pleased to see that the conservatives running Bournemouth Borough Council have now decided to remove the metal bars from public seats, (intended to prevent rough sleepers from using them).

Although the whole episode was an embarrassing waste of public resources and a public relations disaster, at least it helped draw attention to the fact that there is still not enough being done for homeless people.

I have organised a meeting with the Chief Executive of New Forest District Council today.

We will be talking about the Homelessness Reduction Act.

It might well be that the District Council will be prepared to act more positively, with more in the way of resources to help tackle the issue.

I think there should be a relentless drive to avoid anyone being homeless in the New Forest area.
