We keep getting told that the East Cambs district is one of the fastest growing areas in the universe and for some reason we should think that this is some sort of an achievement. It would be if we could achieve some more schools, doctors and hospitals, but at the moment all we seem to be achieving is houses.
What we need most of all, of course, is jobs. According to the ECDC leaflet almost half of the working population commutes out of the district to work. When the huddled masses move into all the new houses that percentage is bound to go through the roof.
One way to encourage employment in the district would be for the district council to spend our money locally. It obviously tried a bit but missed out with the ECDC leaflet - it is published by a company in Dry Drayton.
We recently received a questionnaire asking for our views on East Cambs District Council. I think I can manage that. It called in contractors to handle the forms when they are returned.

Sounds like a job for a local company. It can't be too difficult to open a few envelopes and put some data on a computer. But obviously it is too much for us dozy locals. The forms are to be returned to an address in Leeds. Now that really is encouraging people to work in the district!
