The Barnet Eye is pleased to announce the relaunch of our sister blog today as a wikileaks style resource for anyone who has some juicy info about Barnet Council Future Shape program which should be in the public domain, but Barnet Council are hiding. We kick off today with this - a document slid under our door which is entitled "CSO Success : Notes for the Project Team".
The best bits are in section 3 - here's a few choice quotes
3.2 - "You need a project plan for the consolidation"
3.6 Revenues and benefits. How are you going to reach a decision on this? As you know, the manager isn't convinced you bring any benefits, but is convinced splitting up the service imports change risk to critical services ....
and best of all
3.12 ..... can you access any bridging finance where channel shift has up front costs, for you or services.....
In other words
a) There is no proper plan
b) The bloke implementing the project thinks it delivers nothing worthwhile
c) The project isn't properly financed and hasn't got the cash it needs
I wonder how many councillors have seen this document. If they have it's scandalous that they are proceeding. If they haven't then it is even more disgusting.
Sometimes I wonder just what our Councillors get paid for? It certainly seems that our Tory masters in Barnet don't think they are paid to protect our interests. Please forward me any other nuggets you feel the public of Barnet deserve to see. It is 100% clear to me that the Leader of the Council is engaged in covering up a huge and systemic case of mismanagement. It is not clear at all to me why she should wish to do so.
