The town in question is Marlborough, where the town council is protesting cuts made by Wiltshire Council to local bus services. Here in Bristol, we don't have parish or town councils, we have neighbourhood partnerships, which are considered a division of Bristol City Council rather than an independent elected body capable of holding it to account. Had such an arrangement existed in Wiltshire, the Marlborough Neighbourhood Partnership would consist of members of the very council that had voted to cut the bus subsidies.
The Wessex Regionalists believe that every neighbourhood should have an elected community council capable of standing up for local people. True democracy comes from the bottom up, not the top down.
