Everybody is trying to introduce schemes, which deal more efficiently with waste disposal. However in Uttlesford there has been a multitude of complaints about the methodology chosen and the lack of a sufficiently rigorous analysis beforehand.
The National Audit Commission which assesses waste management of all district councils carried out an audit of Uttlesford's scheme. Among a number of criticisms there are two which stand out:
"The council lacks a cohesive and co-ordinated approach to consultation and there was no public consultation on the new waste management strategy". And secondly "the service can't demonstrate a consistent approach to value for money."

These criticisms of the LibDem management of our affairs make disturbing reading for all ratepayers. Is Cllr Morson going to accuse the Audit Commission of being cynical too?
