Core LLE19 (Highways Design and Works)
Core EffR10 (Local Taxation)

I would like to share few of my concerns and expect some answer from the authorities, as a council tax paying member of the Darlington town.
1. The roads in every area of Darlington are appalling. All the roads have been patched up. No proper resurfacing. Some of the smaller roads where there are 5 to 10 houses has been resurfaced but not the most commonly used main roads particularly roads towards Mowden area.
How much of the budget spending has been allocated for roads. I can not find a smooth road in Darlington. Where are the tax payers money going? The car suspension gets damaged due to these poor roads.
2. I find the planning of the roads in the newly designed city centre roads are very poorly planned with lot of confusion for new drivers.
3. The bin system was another poor planning with Color codes difficult to distinguish in darker days. Both the bin look similar and also the capacity for various recycle wastes are poor.
I would like to know the answers the the above issues which are the day to day problems. Also, I would like to know whether a public consultation was done prior to this years planned increase in tax. As tax payers, public must be informed about these issues prior to implementation. I only came to know from the paper.
Sincerely
