Re: New Bus Station

I don't for one minute think you will be wrong Accymad.
I am still very active and have no mobility problems, but I know a large number of people who have been inconvenienced by the move of the buses and the fact that there are no intermediate bus stops which are close to the market hall.
Many of these rely on the post office for their pension and to pay their bills.
These people are no longer going into town as a social thing.....they are going in only when they have to.
So, it is inevitable that businesses are feeling the brunt of this ill considered move.

LCC say they will put in bus stops if the bus companies want them.
It is the passengers who not only want them, but need them.

Nobody will listen they never have. As long as it doesn't impact on their lives then stuff everybody else.

I have never known a collective group of decision makers so arrogant as this lot.

If they had been trying to kill off the town centre...they could not have made a better job of it.

If they had been trying to kill off the town centre, it would now be as popular as London's Oxford St!

Re: New Bus Station

Can anyone think of any actual improvements that HBC have made to the town in living memory? I have only been back living here for 6 years so only know of recent "improvements".

Only one, Britcliffe isn't in charge, although, I couldn't call the alternative a massive improvement.

Re: New Bus Station

I suppose we should say 'define recent'.
pretty soon our market is going to be like the one at Haslingden....two stalls and only open on a Friday.....then they will have to change all those planters to say 'floral village'.

Don't give them ideas! It's not as if they can just go around with a marker pen, they will have to replace everything with new!

I was thinking of the removal of seating from outside the Market Hall, the Bus Station, the Crematorium Cross, Peel St Toilets - Peel st in general, and others - sorry Cashy, I was attempting to be sarcastic

Don't forget that really special bit of deep thinking, proposing to take expensive DNA tests of dog turds and then match them to the canine responsible, we could have employed 10 full time dog wardens with the budget that would require had common sense not been brought in from somewhere.

Since when, has wasting large amounts of money frightened them? Or even caused them to hesitate?

I refer you to the title of this thread as proof!

Re: New Bus Station

so after all the promises of how much better a labour ran council would be than a tory ran council can anyone say they have noticed any difference in how the council acts and runs things ?

all it took for the labour lot that posted regularly to run away and hide was to ask them a few questions about removal of benches from town center and why we were denied a referendum

if you look at accywebb before the questions these labour lot were full of criticism of the tory lot for not coming on here and answering questions and were full of ideas until they got in power

no matter what party is in power it seems teh same people pull the strings
