2010 : ...THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN ! (TIME AND TIME AGAIN )

- our calls for things to do and places to be are still being overlooked -

THE ABERGAVENNY TOWN COUNCIL and THE MONMOUTHSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL both have COMMUNITY-BENEFIT POWERS ...at their disposal. These POWERS/ACTS are instruments of government to extend the greater common good. When allocating public money a public body must EVIDENCE HOW that spending has added-value or provided community-benefit. To protect civil society we have:- -The Power to provide Community Buildings and Allotments - The Power of Well-being - The Community-benefits Test - The Social Value Act

SO! JUST WHO IS BENEFITTING AND HOW IS THAT SPENDING - year upon year - ADDING VALUE TO ORDINARY LOCAL PEOPLE AND LIVES ?? WHAT LASTING VALUE DO WE RECEIVE ? WHO IS ACCOUNTING?
