Introduction
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

The draft plan is turbid.What is the proper role of a Council? Not to be a Nanny and ban fatty foods. Not to be a life-coach. Not to make people walk the streets in Winter.Importantly will it provide value for money? Will the costs be re-couped by benefit? And will that benefit be widespread, or will it benefit those who chose to over-eat; chose to take drugs; chose to not exercise?Perhaps you could introduce a healthy eating plan, and allow backyard goats, chooks, and cows. Compulsory compost bins! A subsidy for fruit trees, and employ an exterminator to remove pests animals that eat fruit!This plan runs the risk of being a poor financial performer, and worse, just creating jobs for Council bureaucrats.Try some thing smaller and universally useful.
