So you would think that we would welcome this. But as ever, its the SNP/LibDem talking the talk but not walking the walk. £100,000 will get one or maybe one and half traffic calming schemes. It might repair or resurface two or three roads, and not long ones. It will get you 2 and a bit pelican crossings. The 12 neighbourhood partnerships have a population of anywhere between 20,000 and 60,000. I terms of the local road needs for these areas this cash is "buttons" and no more.
Thing is, you see, they don't control the Neighbourhood Partnerships so they don't like them. This is all about power and they don't want to give it up, at any price.
