Gambling with our Council Tax

Watching the activities of the District Council from the perspective of the Town Council here in Chipping Bonhunt we can only hope that the games they are playing in the high stakes casino of commercial property investment will not leave us all in penury if there is a major recession.

Even at the best of times commercial property is a pretty high risk investment. Yes, you can make great returns when times are good and the economy is booming, but come a recession then all bets are off.

We just hope those District Councillors promoting this investment have a mitigation plan in place to cope with an economic downturn.
