Does Tredegar two tiers of local government in Tredegar?

184 people replied in this poll. Some people voted more then once, but these duplicated entries have been removed .One of them was a Councilor from Tredegar Town Council! (best they learn a bit more about computing before trying that one on....).

2/3 of voters do not see the need for the town council in the 21st Century.



Thanks to all that took part. Your comments can be seen below.

they are a waste of tax payers money, there is nothing in Tredegar to warrent a town council the money would be better off being put to better facilities in Tred such as things for the kids to do, we have a lot of waste ground along side the bypass where a complex could be built instead of the people of Tred having to trevel to Merthyr and beyond

An additional level of bureaucracy that adds further tax burden on the community with little negligible value added for the increased cost to the population.

Tredegar needs to keep its own identity with people dedicated to looking out for Tredegars best interests. Plus with talks of BG merging with other boroughs, AND WAG looking into increasing the powers town councils hold, the Town council has a definate role to play.

we need more than a town council.we need county councillors to fight for our town to ensure that we receive our fair share of monies allocated to b/gwent instead of the vast majorities of funds being spent in ebbw vale.

Tredegar Town Council are powerless as representatives in the Blaenau Gwent authority. Tredegar residents pay some of the highest council taxes in the UK, but receive a disgraceful service in return. Blaenau Gwent councillors, who like their counterparts in Westminster are only there to line their pockets/ must hang their hrads in shame.
