Isn’t there a good chance that ALL physical retail, at least in its traditional form, will become obsolete over the medium term? People tend to buy things online now and the older generation who don’t will die out. If so, this is just part of that transition process. I think that once Amazon perfects its mega-warehouse type stores and that comes to the UK, that will be the main physical retail space in the future, and perhaps manufacturer focused “showrooms” like the Apple Store might also survive.
My daughter has sort of half expressed an interest in this but, realistically, what type of person is Councillor a good option for? Is it enough money as a job in its own right or is it a part time “second job”. Seems to me that it’s more a “semi-retirement” job to supplement a pension and give them something to do. Or have I got this wrong?
I spoke to someone on the Council, he said that they are pleasantly surprised how few valid objections (many were submitted wrongly, in the wrong place, etc) there have been on the LDP and they feel that this shows how the public broadly supports their “direction of travel” (his words). They were surprised that even some of the larger developments (e.g. Gatewen Road) received relatively few objections. Also, many of the objections which were submitted were of a “NIMBY” nature, which will be treated with less credence.
Yeah it’s horribly user unfriendly – took me ages to work out how to put in a comment. Most people either won’t be able to or will give up then the Council will declare triumphantly that there were few objections to their plan. Comments sent by email, letter or other means are not valid.
It’s not a zero tolerance approach – I saw a gang of youths deliberately dropping litter in front of a Kingdom officer and laughing, and the officer didn’t do anything.
Once the gang dispersed however, an old dear dropped a tissue whilst retrieving something from her pocket and, was pounced on straightaway by the Officer!
So, not sure what their policy is.
