Swindon's Core Strategy is it a benefit to East Swindon?
« on: August 21, 2012, 11:53:38 AM »
Core Strategy sounds like a new fad phrase but what is it and will it be a benefit for east Swindon. The adver headlines are hopping about like ticks on deer. Build on Redlands Airfield one week and now this week fewer homes in the same area.

Is it any wonder people are unsure of exactly what this council is doing.  :-\

Does this council know what it's doing...

Cllr Williams and Cllr Heenan approve Tadpole farm with no Purton/Iffley road link and then within weeks they are both in the Adver saying it is needed to avoid gridlock!

These chappies are both on Cabinet, both on planning and are respectively lead members for transport and strategic planning. And yet they don't appear to have a clue?

Just who is steering the blue bus...or are they all in the back seat looking for the driver?
It takes wisdom to know what you know and wisdom to know what you don't know and when to call in those who do. Often the people who do know will advise that evidence and research are very helpful when making decisions. Who knows it might even save a bit of money.

I should have thought Coun Heenan was just the man to reroute this road down Oxford Road, and keep his nimby pals happy...... :wink:
