    About 10 years ago when I worked for a contractor, we needed to replace a long length of sewer in a road somewhere in Wrexham because it had collapsed. The road had just been resurfaced a month or two before and the highways department (quite reasonably IMO) said we would need to resurface the full width of the road when the work was done, and this is what we did.
    I don’t know what’s changed since then.

    It’s the same with the terrible resurfacing done after roadworks – if we left the road lumpy, potholed or if manhole covers sunk we were faxed(!) a legal notice giving us between 2 hours and 28 days to sort it out. Councils now claim they have no powers to make contractors make good their shoddy work.

    I saw the messages on Twitter about the “new” lines but if you look on Google Streetview they were there before (including the no loading stripes).

    Agree about the lack of publicity about statutory notices, as far as I’m aware they’re not published online and the only way to find out is to look for the A4 piece of paper tied to a lampost (which sometimes appears after it’s too late anyway) or keep buying The Leader and hope it’s in there.

    The sabotage claim is intruiging,….

    I noticed today that Arriva had posters up saying on that particular route you could use rival operators’ tickets on Arriva buses for an extra £1. I don’t think Arriva liked having competition.

    The other way they can influence development is by having a current Local Development Plan in place….

    I doubt the staff are paid enough to care, and usually seem to rushed off their feet doing other things.

    The same thing happens in Chester – people walk in, grab a big pack of batteries and walk out again.

    what happens if the car parking charges actually don’t generate enough income, will they turn the machines off and scrap the scheme.

    Forestry Commission did just that in a whole area – it was costing more to empty and maintain the machines.
    They put the prices up at the permanently manned sites to balance things out.

    They have only held three public sessions but in fairness, some Council Members have held their own meetings.
    Very poor public relations with non-existent community engagement of any value.

    The last “draft” that came out for comment said something along the lines of “after extensive consultation…” but as far as I was aware there was no consultation. Nothing was advertised on the WCBC about it and I’m subscribed to the email alerts about it – including the one that was sent out with the amusing typo in ‘public’ in the subject line.

    The website is abyssmal, it looks as if it was thrown together by an amateur, not a professional web designer. This is regardless of the content.

    It’s very time consuming and expensive to put together a proper website that collects comments then puts them in the bin.

    Giggs was saying in the interview that the ground needs improvements before it can host competitive matches.
    Is it not good enough for friendlies at least?
