Andrew Mitchell slaps down council for “insensitive” and “high handed” behaviour

18th June 2015

Andrew Mitchell has gone into battle with Birmingham City Council over the way they have dealt with ongoing complaints about the decision to force wheelie bins on households in Sutton Coldfield’s Conservation Area.

In an open letter to the Council Mr Mitchell states that the way the Council have handled the matter “brings [it] into even lower repute than it is already held in my constituency”.

He ends by reminding the Council that “it is important to remember that officials are the servants of local people and not the other way around”.
