It does seem that many of the decisions are made by, in my view, by children who have no concept of real life outside the classroom for another age group.
How very patronising. Most Cllrs and Officers are in their 30s, 40s and 50s; many likely to have lived experience of both young children and ageing parents. I'd put it to you that those in the busy middle of life are best placed to try and walk the difficult tightrope of balancing the needs of one generation against another.
Large offices only now Tooley Street and Queens Road, North and South Southwark.
True. But on typical Council Officer salaries (barring those at the very top), how many do you think can afford to live there? I'd suspect most have to travel in from the southern fringes of the borough or even further afield.
