All change – well, at least there will (some time) be change …

As for that “really confusing stuff from the Standards Board for England about what I can and can’t say – particularly when I title this as “Chairman’s Log”” – the Localism Bill (though it won’t be law for at least 12 months) is dismantling the Standards Board for England. Though it would be better to describe this as change, rather than dismantling. Something with teeth will be replaced by something without – and all Councils will be required to adopt a model code of conduct (though its described as “voluntary”) and a mechanism to enforce it (though without any real powers …). There are some problems still to be solved – the new mechanisms have no solution for bullying, which is a real problem (not in Histon or Impington, but certainly locally).

And the County Council has plans for introducing clearer guidelines for those it describes as “professional bloggers” – deadlines keep slipping since County HR have more pressing issues arising from “restructuring” – but its coming.

Going offline

I’m going offline for a bit – perhaps a while, perhaps even for ever.

A number of reasons:

  • some really confusing stuff from the Standards Board for England about what I can and can’t say – particularly when I title this as “Chairman’s Log”
  • and similarly from my employer (the County Council)
  • time – I’ve not been posting recently (you’ve noticed, of course) – there’s too much to do (for now) and not the time – and there are other things I want to do with time I can release

So, farewell for now.

I’ll leave the links to Archery, Towns and Villages, and my Reports to Council – which are public documents anyway.

All the best
