CLOSE DOWN THE PR WASTERS: DIVERT THE SAVING TO NOISE NUISANCE TEAM

Another casualty of the Tri-Borough catastrophe....

The Noise Nuisance Team at RBK&C does one of the most essential of jobs. They are the frontline in the fight against anti-social neighbours, and, of course, the ubiquitous builders.



So, it's sad to hear that the already radically depleted team has been forced to shed another team manager.
A resident writes: Dear Dame, I wanted to let you know that one of the managers has been cut from the Nuisance Service in Kensington. This is just not on as I know the staff are stretched enough as it is. What can be done?

The resident asks the Dame what can be done?
The answer is simple, but possibly unpalatable.
Scrap the thoroughly useless in-house PR team.
This hopeless bunch spend their days producing press releases no one reads.
The madness of it is that Wandsworth and H&F share PR facilities so why hasn't RBKC joined in?

Keeping the PR Dept going costs close to half a million pounds a year.
How much better to spend a little of this on bolstering the Noise Nuisance team?

  2. Thank Gawd for the Dame! Somedays I have my head in my hands in despair of this councils corruption and incompetence.

  3. They are are the only lot in the Council that deal with builders (planning wash their hands of any rsponsibility) and the problems I had with my neighbour. I like them because they take things on.
