Colwyn Bay Pier - Second Meeting

Following the sell-out first public meeting to discuss the fate of Colwyn Bay Pier, local MP David Jones has announced a second meeting, to take place in the far larger St. Pauls Church:

Mr Jones said: “I now want to report back to the meeting on options for the future of the pier and also to suggest that a steering committee be formed to explore the possibility of establishing a charitable trust to take over the pier and seek to restore it. A number of people have already said that they would be willing to serve on the committee.”

It will be interesting to see how many people turn out for the second meeting and are willing to get involved.

The meeting will take place at St Paul’s Church on Abergele Road at 6pm on March 26

Colwyn Pier - e-petition:
“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to conduct a Public Enquiry into Conwy County Council’s bankrupting of Victoria Pier, Colwyn Bay.”
Details of Petition:
“Following a long dispute over knowingly incorrect Council Tax and Business Rates bills due at Victoria Pier, Colwyn Bay, which Conwy County Borough Council (CCBC) refused to correct, CCBC bankrupted the Pier owner after he refused to pay their untrue claim. We call on the Government to conduct a full Public Enquiry into CCBC’s handling of the whole affair.”

The Government’s response:
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to sign this e-petition, which we regret was accepted in error. As you may be aware, following devolution, the issues raised in this e-petition fall within the remit of the Welsh Assembly Government. You may wish to contact them direct to share your concerns about this matter. Please visit http://wales.gov.uk or write to: Welsh Assembly Government, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NQ.

That was a waste of time then.

Yes, but was it really ever going to happen anyway?

I've never heard of WAG conducting a public inquiry?

...and I honestly thought that No.10 would come up with a better excuse than that for not doing anything!

...surely it wouldn't have hurt for them to at least write a letter to the Chief Exec of CCBC?

But there you go - just shows the utter contempt the Government has for the people of this Country doesn't it?
