Members of the PPAC are taking innovative action to get their message over to Mr S Mackenzie, the Chief Executive of PDC, by asking for a refund of the percentage of the Council Tax that they believe has been wasted on a Planning Department which they feel is ‘unfit for purpose’ and ‘continues to ignore the mandate that it was given this time last year’.
Their blog highlights various examples to support this, such as the withdrawal of the local face to face discussion forums and the move to replace them with a ‘random surveys’.
Please note they are not advocating refusing to pay Council Tax – which, as they say, would be illegal and silly.
Andrew Wilson (from Wool) has posted a copy of his letter and is happy for anyone to download, personalise and post off to PDC. Click here to download the letter. If you do send off a personlised version, can you let PPAC know so that they can let the media know how many people are demanding Council Tax refunds due to the shortcomings of Purbeck District Council.
