Post Office

Is it because the Post Office will be moving to the new banking hub in the old Lloyds Building?

Thank you, Lynne, for posting this. The railways would be taking a step backwards if they go ahead with this plan to do away with practically all the ticket offices. I find it very difficult to read screens in bright sunlight, they always seem to be placed at exactly the wrong angle!

Why  be on the Planning Committee and abstain. After all, they are there to make a decision, surely?

Is anyone surprised at the reaction to this proposal from the general public?

This is an old chestnut that gets trotted out every time when they say that they have to pay these inordinate sums to get the best people for the job. Most of the time the people they get are only after the money, not interested in taking any responsibility and are not up to the job anyway.

I seem to remember them saying that they would scrap the charge for green garden waste if they were in charge of the council. They put it up by £5 instead for the first year they were elected and now we have to pay another £5 p.a. for fewer collections. Makes sense doesn't it! p.s. our local elections are next May.

Cllr. Petherick has been the only one who has ever showed any interest in the issues raised by these planning applications. The other members of the planning committee have been useless.

Well,  no-one saw that coming - did they?

My experience is that the powers that be are not interested in how the site is accessed, that seems to fall outside their remit. All they are worried about is how the site itself is configured to allow for traffic on site only.
