Not that it helps anyone in Featherstone but at least now we know where Featherstone’s regeneration money is being spent. It appears Labour Cllr Peter Box is not happy with the colour of the tarmac in Wakefield town centre and has ordered a re-fit at a cost of over 6 million pounds. Meanwhile our Cllrs remain with their heads in the sand. Roll Eyes

Dont you just love our council. After a day of complaints Yorkshire water true to their word have fixed the problem at the cross roads by 9.15am this morning. Now all the workmen have to wait until 3.30pm until someone from WMDC turns up to switch the traffic lights back on. Meanwhile not a call from our Labour Cllrs Roll Eyes Lips sealed

You can tell its Easter as for the 3rd year running Featherstone roads come to a standstill due to roadwork’s booked for the school holidays. I should have commented earlier as many folk in Fev had all ready noticed that Station Lane is a no go area twice a day at peak times without roadwork’s due to the new quickly growing population. You just have to love Featherstone as she appears to always fight back just when those who wish she would not push her. This week Fev was stretched to the limit with road work passes that have every road in and out of Fev blocked by traffic lights. Just one problem would be a disaster. The disaster struck on Wednesday afternoon as the water main again burst this time on the Wakefield road junction. Fev has been gridlocked most of the day and has probably cost business and peoples holidays many tens of thousands of pounds.
Ironically for those who have ignored the out of date services in Fev even when given the facts the locals are catching up. It makes a pleasant change to talk to people who are discussing the problem and following the growing concerns that Fev infrastructure cannot cope with the increased usage.

Had another Town Council leaflet and noticed the comment that plans to move to the library are well advanced and I have been charged an extra 14% on this year’s council tax for the privilege?
Forgive me if I am wrong but not long after Lister Baths was stolen from the people of Featherstone and sold off for a huge profit that Featherstone never got a penny of.
The next on the list was the original Town Hall in Purston Park. Again putting public opinion aside the property was sold off for a huge profit that Featherstone never got a penny of. Meanwhile Featherstone did finally have some money spent on it with the Old Clock Cafe or Town Hall as you see it today being highly renovated as it was to be the new town hall. But it was not a Town hall in the old sense or like most other Town Halls. Featherstone Town Hall is a room rented in a building owned by WMDC. At the time I believe there was a council tax increase to cover this rent.
So now the plan is to move Featherstone Town Council to a room in the library which will be rented from WMDC. One assumes that the property will be sold off for a huge profit that Featherstone will never get a penny of.
Why is it costing me 14%?
The deal appears to not include the library. As libraries are being shut at an alarming rate is this move the beginning of the end of a Featherstone Town Council?

Just when you wrongly begin to think that every youth in Station Lane is a wrong one because of the few, an event happens that gives heart in the knowledge that some good values still exist. Recently a store was robbed and youths gave chase, retrieved the items stolen and then returned them. Imagine if it became cool to stop crime by the people we assume commit crime and the respect and age gap understanding that could be achieved.  Smiley

You would have thought by now that local Labour Party Cllrs would have learnt they cannot railroad everyone in Featherstone. Without talking to any owners involved WMDC has paid for a survey of the canopies around the precinct with a view to taking them off. As they do not own any of them and have no idea of the structure you can only shake your head regard this regeneration attempt by the committee that excludes everyone except them.  Roll Eyes

So tens of thousands of pounds later I think a fair job has been done to keep some originality. The puddles are just the same but now neater around the edges.  Roll Eyes



And then the suits arrived in Station Lane today pointing and planning the next footpath fiasco. This will be the bottom of Station Lane and huge traffic problems if done in the same way. The ownership of land will be a very interesting battle.  Wink

Are we having a laugh with Tony Blair’s new campaign? The fat cats must be really worried if they have brought Tony out of the woodwork to change Britain’s mind. Let the majority see what life is like after the change first please. June the 23rd 2017 gets ever nearer! Roll Eyes

A bit more unusual this time. A white male drives across the junction and appears to forget he is driving. His car drifts on to the curb and takes out the large BT box. Many homes and business now have no phones or internet and the fix will not be a quick one. Meanwhile the driver locks his car and walks of up the street and possibly catches a taxi. Last week a similar accident happened at the top of the street. Is it the same guy?

There must have been a fate genie working in Featherstone over the last 24 hours or the Labour Party who doesn’t read this forum panicked. Out of the blue less than 24 hours after a forum post Yorkshire Water are calling and asking questions. Apparently they are not happy that the passed planning application for the Pop Factory site now rests with them to cure any problems. And problems there are! Roll Eyes
