So when the Governments cuts the funding to Surrey County Council so that it no longer fund the services it is not obliged to provide, it passes them onto Waverley Borough Council, who then pass the buck down to the parish councils – the grassroots tier of local government. When the parishes can no longer provide them – what then?
Surrey’s roads are now so full of pot-holes, some large enough to place a large washing up bowl into them, is it now time that the borough councils started filling them in? If it says no, perhaps the parishes? Or perhaps we should get out there with buckets of tarmac!
