Well said BEE9. The council seem happy to support ripping up a third of the lawn area for a playpark but do nothing about the areas you mention above. They need to get those areas up to a high standard and buy more benches before they do anything else.

@Lynne , thanks for the link, i think as many of us as poosible need to attend that meeting as, on the surface, it all seems a bit odd as there is no mention of a 'call in' on a decision made at the previous meeting. i will do my best to be there.

@Lynne , not been a councillor for over a year now so my memory might be a bit iffy but i thought any decision made in any council or committee meeting  had to be 'called in' within 10 days of the decision being made if there was to be a challenge to the decision. i have not come across 'to rescind a resolution' before.

@Daverc , the consultant my hubby needs to see wasn't available yesterday afternoon as he was doing private work at mount stuart. his secretary did offer to get me the prices for my husbands injections should we wish to go privately and said we had the choice of having it done at torbay or mount stuart! she did point out that we would still have to wait though, the whole of two to three weeks, ...

What I have learned over the last few weeks is that if you are admitted to hospital as an emergency then you get treated rapidly and the care is excellent. However, if you have a chronic condition then you will probably die before you get an appointment with a consultant! Hubby just been told he will get an appointment to see a consultant in November, even though they know the severity of his ...
