  1. https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/business/2020/04/24/watchdog-to-examine-councils-spending-on-commercial-property/ https://www.expressandstar.com/news/property/2020/02/13/concern-over-council-debt-after-risky-shopping-centre-purchases/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2020/02/29/cash-starved-councils-face-big-bills-buying-shopping-centres/
  2. So they are to buy back something they sold a few years ago What does this actually mean "Council officers say the purchase would give them the opportunity to develop the site in line with their plans to grow the county’s economy". Did they not read the article in the Times/Sunday Times a few weeks ago which reported that Council's up and down the country who had bought shopping centres had seen their investment plummet But then I guess the Cabinet knows what is best for us
  3. Project will include: a cafe/sandwich bar; a community larder; affordable clothing outlet; meeting and counselling rooms with all profits going to ETHOS - reg. no. 1177809. Will they be selling cigarettes?
  4. Probably got better things to do than answer silly questions Covid19 - Public Footpaths - Common sense In any event such a question should properly be addressed to the Council who are the responsible authority
  5. I was only slightly concerned about Covid19 but now as it seems that the Council is involved I am starting to panic!!! Looking at their website it seems they are just parroting the advice of the government Perhaps Karen can enlighten us as to what the Council are actually doing?
  6. It was one of a number of replacement trees in the area. The one outside the Freedom Church survives to date. The one outside KFC in Stonebow Road has also been vandalised When trees were planted during the refurb of Commercial Street solid steel tree guards were included. Why those dumbos at the Council thought that these did not need similar protection is probably beyond the wit of all of us
  7. I do wonder if the Planning Committee really understood the scale of this monstrous building?
  8. Fuel Duty will raise £28billion in 2019/2020. When we are all required to use electric vehicles where will the taxman get his money
  9. Talking of easy wins. The development of the transport hub is now really just a joke. It has been talked about since the decision to build the link road. Just how long does it take to design a place where buses, taxis and cycles can interchange? You could almost design it on the back of the proverbial *** packet. Of course we are promised a public consultation on it but I cannot see any actual construction for a couple of years. It's just more money spent (loads for consultants) but no progress. And in the background is that once its built the bus station will be available for development. It just shows the ineptitude at the heart of the Council - a lack of leadership and direction
  10. That route is smooth when compared to Folly Lane especially on the downhill at speed.
  11. Ah! Politicians don't you just love them Whether you want no bypass or one to the east or one to the west after decades what we want and expect is a decision Countless studies and reports have been made so why do they need more Instead of making a decision they fudge it. What do you expect of gutless politicians?
  12. For some obscure reason there is not a bay at the hospital?
  13. Frankly I was not very impressed with design of the HHA flats but compared to this they are an architectural gem. Setting aside the design the choice of the colour of the brickwork and the finish are truly awful
  14. I'm a bit confused. I thought all of you on here were full on hard brexiteers so had assumed that of the two candidates Boris was the man for you as he wants us out without a deal?
