Can anyone suggest what we can do with this information? Is the council accountable to anyone?
The Council likes to think that it doesn't have to be accountable to anyone esp when it concerns planning and regeneration. Research like this tries to show that in fact what they do is
scrutinised and followed by local people. That must be the first step to then encourage others to hold them to account.
When the Council writes another newspaper article
saying 'we are building affordable homes for local people in The Elephant as part of the regeneration', good research and making it public can say 'Actually, no you are not and here's why'.
