UK LOCAL ELECTION RESULTS

 

 

Local election results in the UK 2019 

 

 

Voters in the United Kingdom tend to be consistent, swinging between Labour and Conservative parties for the most part, even though it is this combination that has created our staggering national debt - making all of us in Britain financial slaves, but with young families struggling to contain debt most of all as a result.

 

 

A zone free of sustainable housing for wealthy landlords to make big profits

 

SHOW US THE AFFORDABLE HOUSES - Wealden can't, because they have not built any. You won't get planning consent in this area of Sussex for low cost housing, because there is no profit in that. It's all about money and the Community Infrastructure Levy. There is no CIL on affordable housing. What these councillors want is lots of expensive houses to generate more rateable taxes that they can then pay to their overpaid planning officers and executives.

 

 

Don't fuck up our planet

 

 

THE MODERN SLAVE TRADE

 

Financial slavery should be illegal. Our present Government has fostered the making of a renting society, rather then one where houses are built that any family might purchase at reasonable prices in relation to comfortable living. It was Margaret Thatcher who really put the boot in with council house sell offs at the same time fostering private enterprise and private landlords with polices that made slaves of millions of people who could not get on to the property ladder, so end up renting at artificially high prices for could be the rest of their lives.

 

One way out of this mess, and a step in the direction of paying off our national debt without defaulting, is to build low cost housing that is energy self sufficient.

 

 

 

 

UK LOCAL ELECTIONS 2019

 

Tories and Labour both did poorly but Lib Dems and Greens swept up more seats in the local elections.

Tories have lost more than two dozen councils and over 1,000 seats so far, possibly due to the poor performance of Theresa May with the EU and Brexit.

Labour are several councils down and have seen a drop of more seats as their position on the fence fails to win them any more support.

Meanwhile the Liberal Democrats are up more than 600 and Independents had a great night.

ABOLISH PLANNING FEES FOR SUSTAINABLE HOMES

 

One way to boost the build of low cost housing would be to make such builds a Permitted Development, with free advice from councils and no community infrastructure charges.

 

Self-builds and flat-pack housing should be encouraged, especially where they are timber and so lock up carbon.

 

Where councils have been allowing building in areas traditionally prohibited, any land apart from Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty should be okay for affordable houses. On ANOBs such buildings should be mobile.

 

 

 

TOKEN SOLAR PANELS - Wow! At last we see signs of intelligent life in Herstmonceux on this building site exiting onto Gardner Street. Pity there are not more photovoltaic panels, and where are the EV charging points. In this village there are no school spaces for the children, meaning that parents will have to drive their kids to another location, or a bus will have to take them. The roads locally are a potholed disgrace and narrow. Travel to Eastbourne is nearly always delayed by the level crossing at Pevensey and the A22 and A23 are slow roads to London and Brighton because East Sussex County Council failed to ensure that our transport system was efficient. There are of course very few electric vehicle charging points.

 

 

Wealden District Council elections took place on May 2, 2019. The number of seats up for election this year fell from 55 to 45, due to boundary changes.

 

 

 

EMPIRE BUILDING - The problem with empires is that they do not last. Their builders always lose sight of the natural limitations that have governed the evolution and ecological balance of planet earth for millions of years before man came along and thought he knew better.
