Following my interview on BBC Radio Tees last week, the Council has now announced the details of their cunning plan to rid North Road of rogue car dealers. I was asked not to reveal the details of this scheme when I went on the radio last week, in case it scared off the traders before the Council got to them.
Bill Dixon, the lead Cabinet member in this matter, has now announced the plan here on the BBC Tees website. Draw your own conclusions about why it's ok for Bill to reveal now what I was asked not to mention on Thursday.
Whatever, let's hope this does some good. I've been going on about this in Council, in Focus and with officers for over a year now and credit where it's due, the Council have gradually been getting their act together. I just have a nagging feeling that the slippery traders will keep one step ahead.
