Regrettably CWaC are reducing the numbers of days that our Household Waste Recycling Centres are opening, I say regrettable set against the context set out below.
Cheshire West Council run by Labour have increased your council tax this week by 4% (despite a highly credible and peer reviewed lower alternative budget put forward by the Tories), over each of their last budgets they have gone for the maximum tax increase they can realistically get away with.
In contrast, the previous Conservative administration implemented over £50m worth of reductions during their administration whilst protecting front line services in every area. It is more than disappointing that the same old Lab mantra of 'tax & spend' persists, even in light of the outstanding example set by the Tories here in CWaC and across many other Conservative run councils of delivering more for less.
Labour here in Cheshire West will have you believe that they are not cutting font line services and continue to deliver an acceptable level of customer service handed over to them by the Tories.
You will see terms in their literature such as:
"We're modernising the Household Waste Centres" or this is
"Your refreshed Household Waste Recycling" service. Centres
They are clearly not maintaining service levels, they are now clearly cutting services by reducing the numbers of days these important sites are open and accessible to residents. The details of the reduced opening hours can be found via the link here:
