ONE of the complaints that the Tories have made regarding the budget proposals has been the lack of detail. At Cabinet on wednesday night, cllr Rob Gledhill (who was joined by fellow Tories Amanda Wilton, Barry Johnson and Tunde Ojetola) referred to the ten parks in the borough which are set to close. Cllr Gledhil’s question was “Which ten?”
Council leader John Kent wasn’t able to be specific. His defence being that they have had to outline £4 million worth of cuts in a matter of weeks.
To help, cllr Gledhill, here is a clip of a park in East Tilbury which was once full of kids playing and play equipment and now….isn’t.
