    Yesterday morning I met with a County Highways Officer and with Paston Parish Councillor Denise McKeough to see how the County Council might help the village with plans to improve the playground.

    Denise and other local residents have got together to plan an ambitious programme of work at the playground that will improve access and provide modern play equipment. The Highways Officer has promised to look into how funds from County Hall might be used to help build a ramp to access the field.

    Do you know of a Highways problem that needs fixing?

    The County Council has given each councillor £6,000 to spend on small Highways projects in the division they represent.

    I think it is a daft scheme - £6,000 cannot buy much and it feels a bit feudal to give your local councillor the money to hand out to their favourite project. It would be far better if the Council was reorganised so that local committees had real spending power to benefit communities with real accountability.
