Basildon Council's 'Let's Talk' events a success

First published in News

Basildon Council has dubbed its ‘Let’s Talk’ events a success after its final scheduled visit to Basildon.

Hundreds of residents took up the offer of a chat with councillors and senior officers about what matters to them and whether they agree with the council’s current plans at events in Billericay , Wickford and Basildon.

Cllr Tony Ball said the events had gone well and a second round of events was being considered.

“The job of a council is to do the best for its local area and people. But local government can no longer do everything - our philosophy is a hand up, not a hand out and that is what creating opportunity is all about.

Future events may be held in Laindon and Pitsea.

Hardly news really. Had the headline read "Council's Let's Talk events considered a failure", that might have been news. Let's face it, what were Bas Council always going to say regardless of the truth?
