  • Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils proposed merger
    Article: Dec 3, 2016

    Suffolk Coastal District Council and Waveney District Council have been working in partnership for some years, and now wish to merge officially into a "super district" covering East Suffolk. The overwhelmingly partisan documentation from the council assures us that this creation of the largest district council in England will save money. But at what cost to localism?

  • Celebration of Richmond Park win
    Article: Dec 2, 2016

    Many congratulations to Sarah Olney, who has won the Richmond Park by-election to become the ninth Liberal Democrat MP in the current parliament, overturning Zac Goldsmith's previous 23,000 majority to achieve a 1,872 majority of her own, after a campaign emphasising the Liberal Democrats' opposition to the government's approach to Brexit.

  • Sizewell C Community Consultation
    Article: Nov 30, 2016

    Stage 2 of the Sizewell C Community Consultation is now underway, giving you the chance to assess the current proposals and submit your comments for consideration.

  • Brexit - what? when? how?
    Article: Nov 23, 2016

    The Chancellor of the Exchequer's Autumn Statement warned today of "government finances [...] £122bn worse off than previously expected by 2020".* Yet despite the UK's confirmed forecast of spiralling debt**, downgraded growth** and increased uncertainty, long predicted by Remain campaigners, the government remains implacable in its insistence on proceeding with an undefined Brexit.

  • AGM
    Article: Nov 16, 2016
