Regeneration of the Town
« on: October 05, 2012, 04:18:19 pm »
I for one am getting fed up of folk always decrying this Town its about time we talked up the town rather than talking it down.

The Green Lane link road will be going in soon this will hopefully stop HGV coming down Station Lane.

Girnhill Lane development "hopefully" will at last be underway anytime now depending on how long it takes to come to a settlement with the three householders that are left. CPO is 16th and 17th October.

A new large supermarket is earmarked for the old Citra pop site.

Councillors are currently pressing for a HGV ban to be put on Ackworth road.

Verner Street is to finally be done up both in the houses and the area around them this will mean that all WDH houses in the town will have been renovated and no one should be living in squalor.
Yes I know there is still the problem of the old Kwik Save site but things are on the up thats my opinion anyway.

Some good news items there but I would be concerned about another Supermarket in Feath. We already have a Supermarket and I don't see the point in having another. The land that used to be the pop factory could be used for some cheap houses to counter balance ten bob millionaires row thats going in up Purston that none of us will be able to afford.

Are you sure about millionaires row i believe there is affordable housing to be built and the planning hasnt yet been passed. There is the outcry about putting hundreds more cars onto a carpark and the chaos it could cause this could be a battle royal if first reports are to be believed.

If all tha other housing built recently in the 5 towns is owt to go by they'll be 3 and 4 bedroomed detached.

I've heard quite a few people comment that the lidl is ok for some things but its no good for doing a full shop,our lass gets a few things from there but she goes to ponte for a big shop,i think we need a big popular supermarket such as asda,tesco,morrisons ect  ;D

My cup is neither half full or half empty, I'm looking at this from facts. The facts are that no cheap housing has been developed in the 5 towns on an half decent basis. All we have are a few pokey houses at lister close.
Companies have been allowed to throw houses up all over the place that locals can't afford and are occupied by out of towners. Therefore the emphasis is to provide for the wealthy and not the poor. If you can prove me wrong then go ahead.
Meanwhile, perhaps you could try and persuade people that existing town occupants are more important than bringing in the middle classes. Well I doubt that you would because you don't care about poor people anymore - no one does. They are simply in the way of future plans. Flatten all the council houses in Fev and have done with it, then bring em all in from elsewhere.
i boloxed my reply up earlier, sorry

Just been looking at the plans that have been passed for the development of Girnhill estate there is quite a lot of affordable housing planned for there. All being well this work should start soon . Once the CPO has been sorted on 16th and 17th October. ;) ::)

What do you see as affordable? I see affordable at less than 400 a month, if they are semi's that are 120,000+ then thats not affordable or indeed viable for young people in Feath on minimum wages of 5.80 an hour. These people earn 200 a week less tax which leaves them about 150 a week. If they have to pay 400 a month to live in a council house and they can't really afford that then how the hell can they afford 600 a month for a 120 grand semi?
Some young people will never ever be able to leave home in the forseeable future and never have an opportunity to own their home or even rent one for that matter. Its not just the cost of housing its the fact that some daft bastard introduced a minimum wage thinking it would stop young people being taken advantage of, instead it had the effect of every employer in the Country thinking 'I'm gonna pay ALL my staff the minimum wage, what a good idea'.
Now we've got 40-50 year olds on 5.80 an hour when previously they were on 8 and 9 quid an hour. It kind of set the president of how people would be paid in the future and if we won't work for that money there's plenty of Polish folk that will.
That minimum wage decision thrust this Country back into poverty almost over night and until someone raises it to 8 quid an hour we are going to have more and more poverty.
We are back in the 1930's and heading for Victorian britain with its slave labour.
