Norwich City Council is the body that should ultimately take the blame for the ongoing review of Council Boundaries in Norfolk which has caused much anger, the spending by councils of hundreds of thousands of pounds in propaganda, court cases and surveys, and still we are waiting for an answer from the government, and all because Norwich City Council made a brazen attempt to extend their boundaries to take over and destroy other neighbouring authorities. Yet, as the Eastern Daily Press highlights today, Norwich City Council are not even fit to run their own services yet alone those of neighbouring boroughs.
The very fact that the politicians in charge of Norwich City Council seemed to know nothing of the fact that a senior housing officer closed down a sheltered housing scheme, only for her to then move in to the premises herself at a knock down rent shows us just how inept Norwich City Council is.
The actual incident itself, which has led to the subsequent suspension of the senior officer, is scandalous in itself. The fact that Norwich City Council attacked such a vulnerable group in the first place, removing them from their homes, was terrible. But for staff to take advantage of this is just appalling.
