Still more snow, and the garden is truly beautiful.
Today I chaired the final meeting of the Environment Committee as we agreed the final wording of the recommendations on The Built & Natural Environment.  One good and positive thing to come out of this review is the plan for a simplified way of applying for a Blue Badge for people with disabilities.  As long as the change is handled carefully it should be one of those rare situations where everyone wins at least something - the applicant should get a badge more quickly and more simply than now, the process should save the council some money in administration costs and GPs won't have to carry out assessments for something which really isn't very productive for them.
