We know that we showed a long-standing ‘out of order’ notice on one of Main Square car park’s lifts over Christmas. Well, we’ve added to our photo collection, with a hasty picture of a notice on one of the remaining car park lifts. So, of the four lifts in the car park, only two are functioning. Yet the council promised a year or so ago that we’d become a ‘top 100’ town by 2018. (We bet that the council regrets ever saying such a thing… Sadly, the promise was highly implausible at the time; lack of progress since then means that the promise is now totally unbelievable.)
What really annoys us is the ‘apology’ for “ANY inconvenience caused”. Does the council think that that there might be NO inconvenience if its lifts don’t work?
Of course, the council offices have their own ground-level dedicated car park. So no inconvenience there, obviously.
