Five options were offered ranging from fully keeping the centre standing to full demolition, with a recommendation for two: either partial or full demolition. The board wisely opined that
1. more information needed to come in before they could make a proper informed decision
2. that the decision had to be exactly the right one, yet speed was of the essence
|for a change - it's City Square|
4. they needed to consult fully with the users before making any final decisions
They also acknowedged that most people consuted wanted the centre as it is - of course without any holes in the roof or the potential for electrocution.
The people who spoke were Cllrs Lewis, Golton, Yeadon and Wakefield.
A small group of us met with Cllr Lewis and Mr Farrington from Asset Management to discuss these decisions and the way forward. Firstly the West Park Campaign Group meets/met on Sunday to discuss how best to fully inform the decision-makers; then there's Scrutiny on Thursday 21st at 10am at the Civic Hall. Open to the public. Sorry if you are at work; but, hey teachers, what better way to spend a half-term morning. If you can't attend, you can send in a letter to the Council.
