» Whose ideas should influence our finances - Machiavelli or Mandela?

In a week when local politics seems to have been turned up a notch or two in the debate over town council finances, it was a curious coincidence that we should have close analysis on TV of the two opposing extremes which drive politicians

» Is ONE Haverhill our dragon-slayer or do we wait for another?

For all the imperfections surrounding ONE Haverhill, it was nevertheless very interesting to hear about the wide range of ideas which were thrown in at their recent workshop about the town centre master plan

» Layers of history as we move imperceptibly towards a new future

By a circuitous route we are beginning to find out the sort of thinking which is going into the making of the next master plan for Haverhill town centre, and some of it is innovative and interesting

» New clock promises to give us time to disagree

Who would have thought that putting up a clock near the bus station so passengers have some vague idea of the time in case a bus happened to adhere to the timetable could be contentious

» Brainstorming session at least teased out an idea or two

If you were in Haverhill town centre on Wednesday morning you probably saw groups of mostly well-dressed people strolling about as if they were on some sort of heritage tour

» If you're a Jedi can't you park your spacecraft in the sky

In the nearly 40 years since I began reporting on the saga of Haverhill High Street and when or whether it is to be pedestrianised I thought I had seen everything. There have been good ideas and bad, attractive plans and dreary ones, clever bits of thinking and rank stupidity, but this week I have seen something which, in some ways, tops the lot

» Times are changing and we are standing up

With just a week to go before the closing date for public consultation on the Vision 2031 planning documents, Haverhill Town Council have expressed a series of reservations and suggested changes which, at last, begin to deal with the fundamental deficiencies found within

» For once, a biased, self-interested and one-sided opinion

For once, I am going to put forward an opinion which is not independent and even-handed, but entirely based on self-interest, and I make that clear from the beginning so you can take it into account when weighing up whether it has any value

» What's good for transparency is unlikely to do much for ratings

This week we have seen some pressure, both national and local, for video cameras to be allowed into council meetings, in an effort to transmit their workings to a wider audience than the handful who ever bother to turn up for them

» 'Not too bad at all' - is that all we want for the future?

The final consultation period for the Vision 2031 planning document about Haverhill has begun and runs for three months – at least, I think it’s the final one, although if the Government planning inspector eventually chucks the whole thing back at St Edmundsbury to be revised, those revisions might have to be consulted on, I suppose

» One Haverhill, looks like it's working!

We’ve heard quite a lot about a mysterious organisation called ONE Haverhill over the last couple of years. I say mysterious not only because it mostly meets in private, which I have said quite enough about already, but also because its function is difficult for residents to comprehend

» Visionary times, but have we got the right vision?

There seems to be something in the air in Haverhill at the moment which is less familiar than the old chemical stinks which, as far as I am aware, are a thing of the past thanks to modern technology..

» It's the old, old story of uncrossable county boundaries

The revelation that Cambridgeshire's local authorities have included a renewal of the railway link to Haverhill among the options in the debate which will lead to their transport strategy plan seems to have come out of the blue to everyone on this side of the border

» Past, Present and Future all combine in one week

But the future is less clear. Vision 2031, as far as I can see, is not what they initially told us it would be. It is less about creating the future and more about protecting the present

» Get out and vote, but find out about the candidates first

Everyone's fed up with politics, I keep hearing. There's no point to any of it. All the parties are rubbish, all the MPs and councillors are on the make. There's nobody worth voting for
