Kent tory tv...never ours...GONE!
KCC Labour Group Press Release Attached.
Kent Tories Ditch “PET” Project
Yesterday Conservative-run Kent County Council finally decided to pull the plug on a fanciful and expensive luxury pilot project when they decided after two and a half years not to issue a contract to continue with Kent TV, a broadband internet channel.
Since its introduction in September 2007 this has cost Kent taxpayers £600,000 a year, a total cost of £1.5 million. Whilst innovative the concept was never explained to the populace at large and very few taxpayers had ever heard of it and certainly never used it.
From the time of its original inception the Kent County Council Labour Group, at that time the Official Opposition, described the project as “a luxury that the people of Kent could not afford”. At that time the original £600,000 to set up the project coincided with an increase of £600,000 in the cost charged to those vulnerable adults receiving domiciliary care.
Leslie Christie, Leader of Kent County Council Labour Group, said “At long last the Conservative Leadership have listened to what we have been saying since Kent TV’s inception. Its continuance would have been a political embarrassment to them and would not have been accepted by Kent Taxpayers. This administration have been whingeing for years that they don’t get enough money from Government but have wasted £1.5 million on this luxury. It is not good enough for them now to say “we are living in difficult economic times”, they owe an apology to Kent Taxpayers for wasting valuable resources.
I hope this late repentance will apply to another one of their pet projects “Kent Health Watch” which duplicates services provided by the Health Service and which is currently funded at a cost of £300,000 per year. Currently it is costing Kent approximately £1,000 per caller. That also is a luxury we cannot afford.”

MAIDSTONE4LABOUR MAINIFESTO 2010
We believe that people will achieve more working together than they can by working alone. Power should be spread evenly throughout society and not be based on wealth, class, gender or race.
We should devolve power to local communities.Decision making at local levels such as neighbourhood policing. Support unitary authorities.
Free bus pass. Free hospital parking. Bus station connected to rail stations. Green cycle lanes.
To prevent homelessness and deliver affordable social housing to a good standard. Council to have control over new build and to rent. Community trust models to be an option.
Schools open longer for sports and community activities, playing fields and parks more family friendly.
Combat graffiti and vandalism with local police support officers and engage with residents forums.
Easier access to primary health care. Support walk - in- centre to help GP surgery's. Community safety initiatives to prevent accidents.
More areas to have bulk freighter collections. Household weekly collections to continue. Allotments to grow own food and encourage more to use gardens and buy local produce.
