Contact a local councillor - simply a waste of time.  as Coun Tomlinson will know I had occasion to contact my ward councillor on a matter and it took 3 months to get 'nothing' When i complained the system gathered the poor little councillor under its wings and offered him protection from the nasty constituent.  The council then adjudicated and basically said - if a councillor promises to get back to you - that is an answer - the fact that he didn't get back to you is immaterial.

One thing that really worries me about some local councillors is that they simply don't do enough for constituents hence MP's postbags and casework is heavily accentuated towards local issues.

So Coun Tomlinson if you get elected as an MP don't be fooled into thinking your time will be taken up with weighty matters of state - more likely matters of rubbish collection

POST 200 (not a big achievement but still woohoo! :D)

i recently penned somethin together for the new leader of the country........it may relate to this thread

Quote
?Dear Mr Cameron,

                I have a concern with one of your newly elected MP's Justin Tomlinson, Mr Tomlinson has been engaging on an internet forum called talkswindon.org (which i think is great that councillors and MP's are engaging through different mediums) although i have become unsettled about Mr Tomlinson as i asked him to explain what his 'crystal clear message' was. Mr Tomlinson has openly said he is against the development at Tadpole Farm in North Swindon yet he will not openly reply to a constituents question. I feel as though Mr Tomlinson is ignoring my questions and polite requests for information regarding the proposed development....i have heard nothing. I am writing to you now as i feel that since Mr Tomlinson had parliamentary prospects he has neglected his duty to the electorate and has let me down, I am almost disappointed that a member of parliament would retreat at the mere sight of a question. I would be extremely grateful if you could help resolve this situation.


Thank you for your time and many regards


Mellon  (name changed for certain reasons)


i am awaiting reply :coffee:

i dont think justin gave in to the developers, as soon as he knew he was going Westminster he just walked away and abandoned the residents, which in my eyes shows the true nature of Tomlinson

Well I wonder how the volume of traffic will impact on the Tadpole Express and what will happen with the speed limit on the Tadpole Express ?????????????

Will the 50 mph school safety zone remain as a 50 mph school safety zone ?
Or will the whole speed limit of the Tadpole Expressway be reviewed ?

Something will have to give and I do hope that all involved consult with the schools on the learning campus as it will affect all of them and the children, parents & staff who travel through Oakhurst or the via the Tadpole Express !!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Justin?...

The developers have been given a crystal clear message what we as local residents would find acceptable and if they choose to not deliver on this, then we, led myself will campaign every inch of the way against this.

The work of the Redhouse Residents Association with me on this has been excellent.

hmm an interesting statement from Mr Tomlinson, so far he has kept true to one of his promises

Quote
the number of houses built being between 1,500 and 2,000, allowing for a better quality development, and a lower number of cars

but for the rest well......that remains to be seen. With the start up of the Oakhurst Residents Association by Steph Exell, after the Redhouse Residents associations dissapearence after Mr Tomlinson went to parliament it is a new chance for the residents of north and west swindon to have their say.

But remember Mr Tomlinson was not the only Councillor to approach Crest Nicholson over the development plans :

Councillor Vera Tomlinson
Councillor Peter Greenhalgh
Councillor Rod Bluh

They have been very quiet havent they?  ???
