TOWN Teams at Whitehaven and Cleator Moor are set to get £10,000 each from the government to help with town centre revitalisation.
Have your say
Well I've heard it all now! Â£10,000 to help Cleator moor. Its nothing more than a insult, when Copeland council helped to get the Moor in the state it is today!!!...by putting those stupid railings around the square and killed our Friday markets, and letting every empty shop into yet another take away..how many takeaways does one small ghost town need? I personally would like to see those railings taken down, and get the community back on its feet.
10k is not to be derided peeps. My hope is that this money is used more for intangible than tangible, 'buy something today and it's gone tomorrow'. Why not get the most important of stakeholders on-board in the decision making process of how this money should be invested in our common good? Who are these stakeholders? Simply people like you and I, the people who live within our borough. Would that not be rather refreshing, I think it will be? When the people who are there to guide and do their best run out of ideas surely it is in all of our interests to get new blood involved? Makes sense? Thankyou.
The whole of Copeland is a dump I've been trying to sell my house for the last few months so I can move into Allerdale, their towns are so much cleaner and well kept compared to Whitehaven Cleator Moor and Egremont
