People (particularly motorists) seem to believe that car parking should be free or as cheap as possible. However, car parking has to come at a price. Motorists expect a metalled surface with good drainage. Motorists expect good lighting plus security. Motorists expect marked-out bays to park in (given that some motorists can’t park in a straight line). And they expect some sort of monitoring or control to make sure that everyone pays. Remember the old car park where Simplygym is now? Do we want to go back to those days?
Hardly a personal interest.
The volunteers that we received at the Millennium EcoCentre did a lot of good work for us, particularly building and maintenance work. They were able to claim bus fare back from the training agencies, but couldn’t claim car mileage. Equally, some of the students with learning disabilities who used the EcoCentre were able to access the bus service with the old stop outside the Gredington being perfect for them. Losing that service meant a significant loss of independence for them.
For a planning application to use access to bus services as a positive point, when the only remains of the bus service is a disused bus stop, really is telling a lie.
Pete – the cycle route is open, but if you’re coming down from Wrexham, you need to turn right at the Gredington to go up to Bryn Estyn Lane and come back down to Clay’s Golf to pick up the new cycle path into the Industrial Estate.
