General   (General discussion, talk about anything.)

I found out from the reporting of the meeting, something which I have been trying to find out, and that is how many of these so called 'podium' car parking places will be available for the flats which they will be building, and it will be one space per two flats, in other words if there are 500 flats, there will be 250 car parking places.

1. Will there be 250 car parking spaces in the new complex ?

I don't think that there will be that number of spaces, I bet it will be more like a 100 car parking spaces for 500 flats, so it as obvious as the nose on your face that there will be a massive shortfall in available parking for those flats, so where will the residents of those flats park ?
All of Swinley which will be the adjoining area to those flats is permit only parking, and on top of that where will visitors park ?

2. With the loss of the Galleries car park, will the council provide extra parking in Wigan to make up for the loss of that car park ?

Will they eckers like

3. The prospective owner of the hotel will want to know where their staff and customers can park ?

4. The prospective owner of the cinema complex will also want to know where their staff and customers will park ?

Bear in mind that Wigan Council car parks close at 7.00pm

So will a hotel chain build a hotel in that location ?

Will a cinema chain build a cinema in that location ?

In view of these parking and I think also most probably 'access' problems to this new complex of buildings, will the Chinese company pull out of the project ?

Or am I dreaming
