Rm 101. Misc. Odds and Ends / Re: Whitworth Cemetery..
« Last post by Terry Reynolds on May 11, 2018, 04:03:51 PM »
and so the stories continue.... after the sunday, I was informed by streetsmart, that the toilets were locked up, due to a key issue, I think they had lost them, but the matter had been resolved and was now back to normal, yesterday I received a email from the council leader to say that the toilets were locked up, due to the fact that they are being closed down and when finished, the ladies one will be a mixed use one and the gents will be closed down. streetsmart made no mention of this, there is no notice on the chapel door or the toilet doors to say this,   so presume the right hand doesnt know what the left hand is saying or perhaps we have now returned to political answers that say or do nothing.... Pork Pie anyone.....

Went to the cemetery again today and yes the toilets are locked still, perhaps the council has a bad water debt with the water company....
May elections coming  up.......

Hello, have just been to the cemetery and it was bad news, as the toilets were all locked up, (do you use the trees?),  also was told that the chapel is about to be closed and will in future be used as a workers hut\store.  What next for this council.... :bash:

Rm 101. Misc. Odds and Ends / council bribery\obsolete jobs....

Today we learnt that the welsh university that has now moved into the old carriage wagon works in shepperd st, has done so, not because of the this 'new' excellent site or any such reason, but because the council has given them a big brown envelope, to incite them to come.  This may be good for the town and good for any students who get benefit from the teaching, but at the end of the day, that's our money they are showering around, and we need tax to go down and we cant afford this lifestyle..
Second, as its now election time again and those strange people come knocking on your doors, (make the most of it, you wont see them again, until next year) ask them to amend the voting papers, so we can vote out the borough councillors, they are now obsolete, with the formation of the parish councils, get rid and save even more council tax money.

The Mechanics Institute / Re: Mechanics Institute - Just what is going on??

read the attached letter from the Crown's solicitors.

It clearly states that SBC have the Power of sale as they are now the sole charge holder and insist on keeping the charge.

I have been told SBC could easily take ownership but do not want the responsibility and prefer to let the building disintegrate further without an owner.
In my opinion it means SBC are an accomplice in the dereliction of the building.

The building is for sale and has been since 2014  .. SBC could take ownership or simply sell it to recover its charge.

The building could be bought from Salmon Burgess for £5000 + 900 + 2500++.  so about ~ £8-10k.. 
or from SBC for its last official valuation in 2000 (£1) if they wanted to.


No one is going to pay £400k which is the charge SBC have on it.

The bank with drew two £500,000 charges for the 2 mortgages Forefront had on the 2 plots and said it was to give the building a chance at a future.  (perhaps also to avoid questions about why the mortgages were given in first place)
SBC should follow suit.
Weren't the urgent repairs done by ScS described as "vandalism?   
Partial roof collapse and a fire, with EH refusing to pay the £250k grant as SBC hadn't consulted them about the unauthorised repairs.
 
PS Emailed Renard about his SA article and sent him the letter from Salmon Burgess.  So Renard is aware, so is the Heritage Minister.
I doubt they will any of them will acknowledge SBCs Power of Sale tho.
