'City Deals' part privatising 1000s of acres of public land

Green candidate for mayor of Bristol Danielle 
Radice points out that a Central 
Government/Treasury proposal called the ‘City 
Deal’ is taking tens of thousands of acres of 
land including hospitals, fire and police 
stations out of council control and handing the 
management of it to local business interests 
through Local Enterprise Partnerships.

The 'City Deal' is taking £1 billion of city 
council assets and around 180 land and property 
assets out of local authority management and 
handing it to a quango to be known as Public Property Board [PDF]

run by the business fraternity through the Local Enterprise Partnership.

The question being how will the mayor make 
decisions about public land when it’s being 
managed by this new quango and out of his or her control?

Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered 
that shall not be revealed; and nothing hid that 
shall not be made known. What I tell you in 
darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye 
hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
