North Devon County Councillor Brian Greenslade says he is deeply upset by the two tragic accidents on the North Devon Link Rd on the stretch from South Molton to the West Buckland turning. The accidents took place on Sunday and Monday (30th and 31st July).
He said “it is deeply upsetting that two tragic accidents have taken place so close to each other within the space of two days. Ours thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends caught up in the accidents. We think particularly about the Mother and two children who have been killed on Monday.
Barnstaple Lib Dem County Councillor Brian Greenslade said “I am very disappointed for our schools who already get funded at £290 per pupil less than average from government. The Conservative majority at County Hall made this worse by then cutting a further £33 per pupil from school budgets this year.
North Devon Schools lost £409,000 this year because of this local decision.
Following the publication of a press release from North Devon District Council, Councillor Brian Greenslade (Barnstaple - Pilton Ward) has accused the Tory run executive of gagging councillors, as well a wasting £25,000 on unnecessary consultants.
Comments made by Cllr Greenslade and fellow Lib Dem ward councillor Mair Manuel had not been included in the statement as the views expressed did not support those of the executive.
The reports, Journal 15th June, of statements made by the North Devon MP about improving the Link Rd (NDL) again display his attempts to take credit for work done prior to his election in 2015.
