Now since this man has taken his position the council seems to have gone from bad to worse, there are more managers in the council, and more overspending, and now they are claiming there is a large OAP population in the area!
But just a mo, who has allowed all of these OAP Flats to be built in the area, when communities have objected over and over again to lack of services?
Maybe WAG has looked at the poor management as is not prepared to bail the council out.
People in the community are clear that McCoubrey needs to resign!
Whilst Gwynedd was bottom with Conwy with just a 2% rise, Denbighshire at 3.7% received the highest percentage increase in North Wales whilst Newport in Gwent, south Wales, had the highest settlement in the country, receiving a 4.7% hike
South Wales councils such as Cardiff and Swansea received increases of 4.1% and 3.8% respectively. The average increase across Wales is 3.1%.
But Conwy has one of the most elderly populations in the UK and high social care costs and is facing a funding gap of around £25m next year.
“But we also have significant areas of deprivation within Conwy. In terms of our geography, topography, and population size, we are very similar, and put simply, I can’t see how it costs 15% more per head to deliver council services in Denbighshire than it does in Conwy, so I’ll continue to make the case for change and for Senedd Members to assist me with this.”
