I had a problem where i live so i went along and spoke to steve in his office and guess what he got it sorted so if you need to moan about things go and see steve in his office and dont sit and do it on a forum full of sad lonley people who have nothing better to do with there time .
I thought the objective of this site was to create an open forum for discussions about, amongst other things, local issues. There are already some questionable issues relating to the posting of useful links on the grounds of them being considered advertising. Fair play, if the owners/moderators wish to keep it that way then that is their business even though some of us believe it probably works against the effectiveness of the web-site overall.
Many people cannot get to see Steve in his office due to work commitments and other issues. In this day of electronic communications I see nothing wrong with local people posting their thoughts here. It invokes discussion, which is surely what this place is all about.
Despite the other restrictions imposed, I for one feel it would do no harm for residents to post their comments, good or bad, about the area on here. Not only does it invoke discussion, it can also provide some useful answers to questions and/or points of view.
In fact, the board is an ideal opportunity for Steve to answer some of those questions openly here, or to inform the local community of projects underway or under consideration by the Council. The benefits of this being that if at every meeting he holds there is a string of people wanting answers to the same question then one could argue that is not a good use of his limited time.
I cannot believe Steve does not read this board. From previous postings we are led to believe he is in regular contact with the LG office. So, again the suggestion that perhaps Steve or someone on his behalf might like to come on here occasionally and answer questions or inform in advance might be beneficial and help to give the board the proverbrial kick up the bum it so desperately needs?
Might I suggest that LG asks Steve for his thoughts and whether he feels he has the time to come on here occasionally? If he does, fair play on him and we can all look forward to hearing some, hopefully positive, news from time to time. If not.... well that is up to us to draw our own individual conclusions as to why....
Just my thoughts
