What's really making me think is where the access road for this new development is going to and who's territory is it going through?? . Crest Nicholson has already stated that they wish to bring down the number of cars by introducing a public transport network into the area.....now there is a fundamental problem with this, several thousand new residents with their own transport they have already paid for or pay extra to use a bus??

Anyway back to the grind....still waiting on this crystal clear message Mr Tomlinson although it seems odd (to me atleast) that you would tell the link this message but not tell a resident, have you been cHarmed into not saying anything on TS or talking to the public in general?? And have you taken a step back because you feel your off to green seats and brandy??

Catch you soon........

I think that cllr Tomlinson  has been too busy of late to engage with TS? I think he will get back to you with an answer when things have calmed down.

"More houses in Tadpole why is that are there not enough already?" 

I'm fairly sure that on the grand plan for Northern Development it was not planned to jump across Tadpole Lane. (I can look that up  I still have the plans)  However, we did ask why the planned secondary School (Isambard) was to the rear and off centre of the grand plan, no answer, so we assumed that at some time in the future, that would not be the rear off centre but in the middle of more development.  I don't think any fo us thought it would be before they'd built the other planed areas, like Wichelstowe and the Triangle though.

I though Tadpole farm got named in the Regional Spatial Strategy. Like Muggins, I thought it was only to be developed after the likes of Wichelstowe were completed.

oh Geoff what a cynic you are.

Personally I think JT will return to TS, but if he doesn’t get to Westminster, and without a council seat, what will he be doing?  :-\

Wherever he goes ill be following him.......politically of course

telling everyone he is working hard still........and then either start working for Digital City UK or Crest Nicholson. My top two guesses, im sure he could always be promoted to sergeant in the cHarm police  ;)


STILL waiting for that message Mr Tomlinson........

Problem is who is he selling his soul to fund his General Election campaign, will he let us know who has given to the William Pitt Club? is it GetSignal local private buisnesses and Rikki Hunt individuals? his continued silence is supiciuous, have Crest any developers supported him? if so which ones? Perhaps he would like to break his silence and reply to Mellons request?

He seems to respond quickly enough to any topic that suits his purposes, perhaps there's no photo opportunity, is this what we can expect if he is elected as an MP?

Mellon perhaps you might whish to go to the Priory Vale facebook site where he is described as 'The sheriff of Priory Vale' and leave him a message?

Geoff, what odds you offerring? count me in for a £5

What general election campaign?? He hasn't done anything apart from tell everyone  he's working hard and doing near enough bugger all! . I think Mr Tomlinson has been following Rikki Hunts work ethos "Do what you say you will". Ill leave that with you for now.......Still waiting Mr Tomlinson and while I'm still waiting for this crystal clear message I shall do some light reading

Try War and Peace and if you spend only 1 hour per day reading it by the end you will still be waiting for a reply.
Perhaps the elusive Cllr Tomlinson should be renamed to Justin Time or even better Just Toolate

Did someone tell me the Tories were 'doing' The Bramptons last weekend?

I was away and.................

Nobody here has mentioned it so either they didn't or it was not important enough for me to be told!!

Whilst I was leafing my way through the stack of magazines I found a copy of the Link magazine I had yet to read and had a little flick through………and I found what I believe as Mr Tomlinsons crystal clear message…….BUT I decided to take a closer look

I would like to take this opportunity to hand out a couple of questions to Mr Tomlinson and anyone else who has any info..


Quote
The councilors’ list of requirements include:

“List of requirements”? Mr Tomlinson I thought you said they had a CRYSTAL clear message of what was acceptable?? Not a list of guidelines of what you would like…..

Quote
The number of houses being built between 1,500 and 2,00 to allow for a better quality development and lower number of cars.

Hmm seems fair enough but as far as I have noticed there is an average of 2 cars per household, so your talking around 3-5,000 cars?? How will the local traffic scheme deal with this rise in vehicles??

Quote
Extensive green buffers and open space to improve the character of the northern development.

“green buffers” slightly interesting, can you provide more information on which green buffers you shall be using??. “open space to improve the character of the northern development” if you wish to have an open space in the north Swindon development , don’t build on it………leave it alone

Quote
Traffic controls which do not have any unnecessary impact on existing residential areas.

But surely there will be an unnecessary impact on existing residential areas – extra cars.

Quote
Infrastructure, particularly schools, in place from the beginning of any development;

Why schools at the beginning, Mr Tomlinson?? What about gas, water, electricity, roads, ??

Quote
Full public consultation so local residents can help shape and influence any potential development.

Can Mr Tomlinson please state what influential decisions have been confirmed with Crest Nicholson, if any.

Quote
Improvements to flood alleviation infrastructure.

Can Mr Tomlinson please clarify which improvements will be made to the alleviation shceme to protect against flooding?? Whilst also remembering that green buffers also reduce the risk of flooding.

Alas there is a couple of questions that has not appeared yet, so me , being the gentleman I am shall ask them………

Can Mr Tomlinson or Mr Greenhalgh please confirm where and how this development site will be accessed without causing disturbance to the local residents??

How much extra traffic will be on the roads while construction is happening and who is going to pay for the sweepers to go round cleaning the access point??

Your comments please Mr Tomlinson

I think Mellon has every right to ask Justin he is a local councillor in the area and a PPC. If you want to be partisan and defend him fine, but K we can ask who we like what questions especially those locally who hold local power. After all Justin supports connecting people connecting places. He is always working hard, just does not seem to want to talk to anyone after starting this thread. He is Gagged by the Tories so K if ya see justin tell him.
To qualify for inclusion there is only one rule - something described must have been said to have happened. `If the facts don`t fit the legend, print

Valid point ........BUT Mr Tomlinson lives in the area and has said that he has given the developers a crystal clear message, all I want to know is what this supposed message is, clearly (in my eyes anyway) Mr Tomlinson has been silenced by the tory whip........Mr Tomlinson still has the chance to answer these questions openly and and honestly but it seems he has turned his back on the public.

Also Kohima I don't quite understand your defence of Mr Tomlinson by saying the government has forced these houses upon the council, it what way has the government forced a development upon swindon borough council?? When crest nicholson bought the land and decided to develop a housing estate on the land?

Is it possible Mellon that Kohima is in fact a Conservative Councillor who has more than a passing interest in our Justin, towing the (party) line?
