Council should be disbanded

AS A long-term resident, I have once again been disgusted with the Rogerstone Community Council and am not afraid to say I have for many years advocated for this council to be disbanded, but to no avail.

After the fiasco of Bank Holiday Monday at the Welfare grounds, the damage and expense incurred by these few people who had plenty of time to cancel the event, but failed to do so, now surely this is enough for the people of Rogerstone to say enough is enough – it is time for them to go.

Mrs V Dust, Blackbird Close, Rogerstone

There are ways of doing this if enough residents agree. Check with Newport Council

Mrs Dust, if you read this in time, there is a community council surgery between 6 & 7pm where you can complain, ask questions etc to your City & Community Cllrs. At 7pm there is the main council meeting. An agenda is available on the website http://www.rogerston
ecommunitycouncil.co
m/
of what will be discussed at Wednesday's meeting including the sale of the community owned green field, bethesda Field. if you have the time, please pop along to the meeting & show support along with other residents.
lastly, i totally agree. The time has come for the community council to go. Practically 'Authoritarian' in every way. No doubt there are a lot of other residents out there who share your point of view.

Sorry forgot to mention. The Community Council can be abolished by calling a public meeting with the Rogerstone community. I believe it only takes about 10 residents at the public meeting to put forward a vote on whether the RCC should be abolished or not. i believe the monitoring officer must then provide a vote for the Community to decide the fate of the Council. If the previous RCC establishment do not start changing the way they communicate with the residents and being totally open, then it doesnt leave much option open to the residents in the near future. Have your say this wednesday between 6pm & 7pm at Welfare Grounds.

The Festival on Bank Holiday Monday, which was enjoyed by over 2500 people, as reported by the Argus, is nothing to do with the Community Council, it is run by an independent, non political committee. All who attended despite the bad weather had a fine time.

I suggest you cross reference the members of Rogerstone festival committee to those who are cllrs on RCC. Of course the welfare grounds must have had a different weather forecast to the rest of Rogerstone on that day. Perhaps RCC signed up to a legal agreement with mother nature to keep the rain away.
