Lincs County Council drives 20,000 miles - every day

The Spalding Guardian has picked up on my call for action to stem the spiralling mileage driven by officers and elected members at Lincolnshire County Council. HERE

The Guardian calculates the mileage travelled on official business for the County Council is almost 20,000 miles EVERY day.

Of course, Lincolnshire is a big, rural county. But the number of miles driven is soaring out of control and needs urgently gripping.

We have to remember who's picking up the £3.3 million tab each year - the council taxpayers of Lincolnshire.

And as the biggest employers in Lincolnshire, we have to set a better example. No-one will listen to the county council bleating on about saving the environment if we can't get our own house in order.
