Council not responsible for Recreation Ground issue
LAST week's Target brought us yet another rambling from a Sleaford Town Councillor.
Another bitter attack on future development, NKDC and regeneration plans; we have seen it all before.
However this ignores that these items he continually goes on about are not within the remit of the Town Council.
Our Town Councillors do not appear to care about the issues they are elected for, namely keeping our town clean and tidy.

Sleaford Town Council are responsible for the dog warden, street cleaning and the cemetery.
They own the disputed area of the Recreation Ground, but the wider regeneration strategy is not something that the Town Council has any authority over whatsoever.
So instead, having probably realised they have got elected to the wrong council and with no visible accomplishments in office, some of its members fill their time blustering to the local press about issues they are not elected for.
As they have no authority on the town's development, I cannot understand how these councillors think they are helping matters when week-in week-out they attack the people they need to work with at NKDC.
If they have concerns over the Recreation Ground surely their time would be better spent trying to influence NKDC behind the scenes.
I am worried that Sleaford Town Council has been poisoned by single issue activists trying to scaremonger and block all future development plans in the town.
As I say, the Town Council's actual role is to keep the town clean, so if any other Town Council candidates make promises about the regeneration, traffic, roads, new houses etc they are wasting our time.
It is not something that council has the power to deliver on.
