It’s a nice thought but all of those buildings (with the possible exception of Granny Midges?) were derelict and in the hands of private landowners.
As long as residential property makes more money than commercial rents it’s only going to get worse as town centres across the nation decline in the internet age. We just don’t have Roman walls or a nice riverside or racecourse to entice the masses into town.
We could probably ensure the LDP doesn’t identify these sorts of locations as residential but in my opinion, an offshore property trust can afford to leave something derelict for 20 years until it falls down.
Also Plod would need to prove you weren’t in control of the vehicle as a result of the distraction. Eating and drinking at the wheel is perfectly legal otherwise. That’s why the highway code just says “avoid”, not MUST NOT.
FirstGroup and StageCoach are both bigger companies than Arriva but they won’t expend resources in an already saturated market. Stagecoach’s amazing C56, it seems to be using an ancient Optare Solo, unrefurbished. Yet the Arriva service to Minera I saw earlier was a 15 plate bus with WiFi on-board.
No company will touch places like Gwynfryn because passenger numbers are so low it is literally a waste of money. Something like the 45F to Bettisfield would be useful, some sort of outlying areas bus ran in conjunction with Denbighshire/Flintshire.
Before reading this topic I had no intention of going to Ty Pawb when it opens but now I think I might!
