Location of new car park doesn’t make sense

Location of new car park doesn’t make sense

What were they thinking? Building a premium car park in such a location? I am, of course, referring to the new carpark being built off Plantation Hill next to the shops on Kilton Hill, and just before Bassetlaw Hospital. I bet the premium carpark company Bank Mark Management saw an opportunity with the hospital staff parking scandal.

Brexit gives us one chance to escape EU, we will not get another

Martin Hutton (Guardian Viewpoint) may be right that some of the world regards the EU as a world power. But in reality it will only be so if Herr Junker achieves his vision of welding the EU countries into a ‘United States of Europe’ with a single tax system, a single judiciary administering a single legal system, a single parliament and a single police force and army to keep the states in line or to wage war if the powers that be decide so.

Roadworks - who is responsible for this complete mess?

I confess to only being an irregular reader of the Worksop Guardian. But now one infuriated by Bassetlaw, hence the email. This is perhaps more of a question for Grundi than a news item. A relatively simple question really: which escaped lunatic is responsible for the highways of northern Bassetlaw - as clearly the person involved should obviously be returned whence they came? 1. The ‘improvements’ on Gateford Road, at Gateford, caused major traffic problems - not just in the ‘rush hours’ and impacted heavily on bus services (that are already unreliable due to the blasé attitude of Stagecoach to customer service). Parts of the roadworks were laid out in a way that larger vehicles emerging from side roads on to the former A57 had problems manoeuvring and could cause grid-lock. Not only that, the amount of time being taken - to be polite - ridiculous! A group of partially sighted geriatrics would apparently work faster than the personnel employed on the project!

Council proposal - system now serves itself, not the public

Margot Parker MEP (Worksop Guardian Your Opinion) is correct that a new unitary council for Nottinghamshire must protect and enhance local democracy if it replaces the current two-tier structure of county and borough/district councils, but the phrase ‘super council’ isn’t an accurate description of what a unitary authority would be.
