General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
In 1990 I was having an argument with the then manager of the Market Hall, and the subject of objections and petitions came up, and he said sarcastically whilst smirking, "the council received a petition with over 80,000 signatures on it, objecting to this place being built (the then new market hall) and they took no notice of it, that was from a senior council employee, and with this development, it is just history repeating itself, the council have decided to build 500+ flats on the location of the old Market Square, with no adequate parking provision, the 'podium parking' it will utilise, will only provide a fraction of the parking spaces required, and it will be expensive to use.
The council are programmed to ignore objections from the residents of this town, as Mr Sledge once said on here "the council employ people to answer the phone's people like you lot, so that we don't have to talk to you"
Make of that remark what you will.
