You’re probably aware that the borough council’s Local Plan consultation expires on Moday. The document sets out the council’s plans for the next sixteen years.
To be honest, we struggle with the whole concept. The council has failed to do anything about this handle-less door in its car park for at least the last six weeks. This means that there has been no access to the top floor of the building from one staircase. Not that anyone wants to use the stairs – you’ll probably find our second photo showing the side of a few of them rather off-putting.
Judged by what we’ve shown, managing the long-term future of an entire borough must be way beyond the council’s current abilities. Accordingly, our formal response to the consultation ends by saying that the council must set out how it will resource its proposals before the draft Local Plan can have much credibility.
