For instance, the housing problems are growing acute in regions occupied by the minority group of Asian Pakistanis. There are, however, no similar problems faced in the locations occupied by the majority white population or other minority Asians of Indian origin or other minority groups.
This may mean either the council authorities in these area are deliberately sidelining Asian Pakistani groups as they are from the lower level of income group or the authorities face resource crunch and the said group is in no position to alleviate the problem faced by the local authorities (The Housing Needs of Black &Minority Ethnic (BME) Communities in Hyndburn).
Britain is among the leaders in technologically advanced countries and Lancashire is bound to be affected along with the rest of the nation due to changes technologically brought about in accordance with policy changes year after year. Environmentally, Britain is among the top industrialized nations that has poor record of carbon emissions. So, any changes for the better must come from the top national leadership and the local council is not in position to dictate terms. The local council cannot make national policies although they can make their views felt.
92% of the population is white, and there is almost no problem in the places where they reside and work. The changes in national and regional policies do not affect this population as such policies are worked out pragmatically for the better. Policies involving housing, economy, social issues, and important institutions such as schools, hospitals, and civic offices are framed to suit the majority of the white population and other ethnic groups that are well off.
The planning of townships and environmental factors are carried out by experts in the field and executed by the Hyndburn Borough Council. In such instances, there may be teething problems such as the interiors or plumbing materials used may not suit certain occupants and may require to be changed.
The majority of planning and execution may not require changes in these circumstances. No changes are required in either crime statistics or economic issues as these are capably dealt with by the authorities. However, changes are needed in environmental factors and issues confronting the minority group of Asian Pakistanis. It is left to the wisdom of the Council to effect changes required which is largely attitudinal and any suggestion for changes can only be preliminary since no outsider could effectively suggest changes in Neighbourhood Action Plan that the local council feels cannot work.
Britain is a country that respects laws. The British are prudish about their laws. They will not allow their laws to be taken for granted. Nonetheless, in the changing times it is necessary to modify laws in view of new situations and circumstances. Policy changes are done at the national level and this makes it necessary to keep abreast of the new developments. This also makes it necessary for local councils to remain in touch with their regional authorities and get updates about the latest developments
