101 Reasons Not To Invest In Bedlington By Northumberland County Council

Recommended Posts

I just posted this on another thread and thought I would post it again as a new thread of its own... I am soooooooo frustrated with this!!

Here is the original post...

I cannot believe that the council or anyone else for that matter is making an issue out of the available parking as a reason to limit investment in the town!

Don't they get it… NO ONE COMES TO BEDLINGTON ANYMORE!!! don't they understand that? - What a great problem it would be if it was real... A street packed with punters and cars coming from miles around to visit the multitude of retail establishments overflowing with every consumable known to man!

Really... the council needs to stop putting ridiculous obstacles in the way... investment isn't easy to come by at the moment and for the first time in the history of our town we have 3 major retailers; Asda, Tesco and Witherspoons trying to move into the town and the bl**dy council is thinking of every excuses they can from Parking spaces to Bats nests, to try and stop them!

FOR GOODNESS SAKE NORTHUMBERLAND COUNCIL, PULL YOURSELVES TOGETHER!???? Surely you can see how you can make a difference to the future odf the town, in a way that Wansbeck District Council failed to do!

***Sorry for the rant, but this is just an absolutely ridiculous situation for this town to be in

Jim,

I really get what you are saying overall and heartedly agree, I just don't understand the 'available parking as a reason to limit investment in the town' bit? Were/are NCC investing in the Town, have they even got any plans to? I know there is a group trying to make that happen but it's a bit like moving a sand dune with a fork!

Are you having a go at possible parking charges in the Town? I have a bet on with several people that we will see that re-emerge before we take our next sup to Auld Lang Syne!

There is one area which always gets in the way of possible developments in the Town and that's the conservation tag the Front Street, and now surrounding area, has. Good thing…….bad thing…….I dunno. Without it we wouldn't have had the Market Place regeneration, and even if some people don't like what it turned out to be it does represent a million squid inward investment.

Here's a laugh for you, and a probable insight to the people running NCC. They have been employing a person to help find ways of saving money for NCC. Oooh! That's good I here you say! Well this guy is being paid ONE THOUSAND POUND a DAY and has been employed by NC COONCIL for EIGHT MONTH and is still on the payroll! You still laughing?

I thought it was £1100 a day Merlin!!!!!!

We have seen this before, if you want to shut down say vast parts of a nationalised industry for ideological reasons probably best to get say a foreign national in to actually do it! It deflects some of the criticism!

As I mentioned parking charges in this thread already………..

Also as we are talking about NCC investment in Bedders, although how that can be appropriate seeing as the Town council have bought into new market stalls which will be located in the Market Place????

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
