Why does it take APC forever to make decisions?
How long should it take to make a decision?
Skatepark-Discussed for at least 6/7 years.
Crowgate-Discussed for the last 4 years.
The Green-Ongoing for the last 2 years.
Repair and reinstate the football pitch on the Recreation ground. Discussed for the last 4 years.
Repairs to the Annexe-Known about for at least 4 years and the structural report was discussed by councillors 4 weeks ago.
Seek external funding for major projects-Discussed for the past 18 months.
New restroom and storage area for the groundstaff-Voted for last year.
Lots of discussions, very little action. What a shambles.
In March 2016 we published this:
APC councillors still find it very difficult to work together for the benefit of Anston. Even more galling is that the same 6/8 councillors diligently attend Charity and Finance meetings and it is rare for all councillors to attend full council meetings. What happened to ‘We want to do the best for Anston’?
Numerous agenda items are deferred because either the sponsor of the item does not attend a council meeting or the council meetings run out of time. What on earth is going on? No single councillor is at fault but collectively APC is disorganised, disunited and fails to make sure resolutions agreed by the council are carried out.
We need better decision making and more visible evidence that APC is actually doing something. Instead of just talking.
