Garages sell-off concerns

I AM writing about my concerns about a letter from Mansfield District Councilto regarding the sell-off of Council garages in the area, for construction of private development.

I thought that councils were formed originally to protect the rights of the less fortunate. I have rented garages from Mansfield District Council for approximately 20 years, so I have paid enough for this property to be owned by the people - not to line the coffers of the authority.
