Could it just be Steve that TS has lost it's appeal for some.

Could be, couldn't it...?

- WiFi gate
- 'Pratt-gate'
- Public questions regarding the financial picture behind 'Peters parking tax'
- Public questions about the financial backgroung to The Big Weekend
- Public questions about the 'regeneration'
- Public questions about business connections
- Public scrutiny of the democratic process

etc. etc.

Yes Bob. For once I agree with you. I can very definately see why TS 'might have lost its appeal' for some councillors as particpants. (Though it might also explain why we see so many anonymous guests viewing certain topics  ;) )

Oh by the way I never said the email came from Conservatives Swindon

So, to quote you, the conservatives are apparently 'emphatically denying' Pratt's association with them, and you have this in writing - although its a private email - and its not necessarily even from the conservatives themselves... So, about as reliable as what the bloke down the bus-stop told me this morning then?

Why are you sharing this information of dubious provenance with us Bob?

Steady on  Tobes I may be wrong here. Looks to me as if you will be watering Bob next, as you may be accused of implying he is some sort of tory plant. Well informed UKIP chappie.

I daresay Bob will just think I'm being rude... but tbh I'm simply confused/bemused  :-\

Still waiting for an answer justin!? (That's if you've not been bullied into being quiet) Not long left on the clock before I contact the developers directly and ask them if you've had any dealings with them at all.......I'm just wondering if the council has bought into Crest Nicholson after it sold 90% of its shares to keep the business afloat after a £500 million deficit

I hear that Justin Tomlinson was not at the houses meeting last night in the Shaw Village Church and that it was more about the politicians than the needs of the residents.

I hope this is not true and invite someone to correct me if it isn't.

Richard

I attended, as I am opposed to the 3,000 houses and have made that very clear from the off.

He is telling you he is working very hard Mellon because he thinks you will believe it if he says it often enough.

I hope Victor will not use the working hard, which I think he has done? Anyway most politicians use it or a variation of it it has  now become such a boring stale strapline. Anyway as Justin Tomlinson  has laboured it so to speak the Victor will now have to do something different. Whilst the tories are in their conference today Labour were out in the North again!

Is Justin working hard in the whole of North Swindon now? He is one Councillor in Abbey Meads so perhaps all the other councillors in Highworth, Moredon, Penhill, Pinehurst Goreshill, Western, Haydon wick (Cllr Renard's tweets would show something different.) etc are not doing anything and has Michael Wills also done nothing, since Justin Tomlinson came on the scene? Justin should be clearer working hard in Abbey Meads is a fair and accurate strapline, which I think is what he is referring too. Or do you think I am I presuming too much Richard?

He may work hard, but his recent voting record  as threaded in TS threads demonstrates clearly he will abstain or vote with the whip. Robert Buckland can say otherwise as he is a political unknown in Swindon so he may be given the benefit of the doubt by voters. So it could be the same for Victor or again am I presuming too much?

But then again Mr Tomlinson may feel his seat in parliament is secured and has decided to take a step back from his duties in his ward and letting everybody else do the work he is claiming to do..........isnt the councillor supposed do the work on behalf of the residents and not the residents do the work on behalf on the councillor.........as for the voting record Mr Tomlinson should be reminded he is there to represent and vote for his ward not himself and party......but im sure Mr Tomlinson or any other Tory member would not do such a thing, or would they??

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........

"they wish to bring down the number of cars by introducing a public transport network into the area..."

It was on this idea that Priory Vale was designed.  Roads are narrow, houses dense and cycl routes run where car parking spaces would normally be.

Result? The road is so narrow and so crowded with parked cars tha tthe buses and emergency vehicles havea job to get through.

It might work, as it does in some developments in Europe, but it needs the developers to say, "you cannot buy one of our dwellings if you have a car".  Chances of that  - nil.

It may work.....but I seriously doubt there will be any amazing logistical suprises in store for north swindon

amazing logistical suprises

Really? I'd bank on them. Not all surprises are pleasant you know.

I remember when I had me Jeep trying to navigate round one of those new build estates, I had the not infrequent feeling I was driving down a path.

The house we visited was notable because you could open the front door whilst ensconced on the downstairs throne. My delight was in marked contrast to the missus' reaction.

Bit disappointed about the commitment to public transport despite it's inability to meet the majority's needs, public transport has it's place but penetrating deep into a housing development and consistently meeting the majority of the residents' transport needs is a philosophy rather than a practical reality surely?
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

More houses in Tadpole why is that are there not enough already? Justin Tomlinson is only a councillor. It's the Leader that has all the power one only has to read this board to see that.

I'd also have thought you could do some kind of correlation of house size to likely number of cars... if you're building a development of big expensive houses I'd view it as highly likely that most of them will probably have 2 cars...

Although it would be very nice to be able to go green, I'd actually take a substantial pay cut if I got rid of my car (more than the costs of running it).  I know I'm not the only person in a similar position - so there's a whole raft of other things that probably need to be looked at if people really wanted to make this work, not just planning regulations.

Or has realised that every time he opens his mouth people are realising that he couldn't find his arse with an atlas?
