DIS­ABLED ARE VIC­TIMISED

I THOUGHT I would write a let­ter and air my views on the rules of park­ing in the doc­tors’ surgery on Sun­der­land Street.

First of all, as far as I know, the car parks are run by Park­ingEye. If you are dis­abled and on their reg­is­ter, you are al­lowed ex­tra time.

Not so here, ev­ery­body is only al­lowed one hour to park from the time you en­ter the car park.

A lot of peo­ple have to use a wheel­chair like my wife and it is very time con­sum­ing from the time you en­ter to the time you go out – and an hour is not very long.

So I think dis­abled peo­ple are be­ing vic­timised. Name and ad­dress sup­plied

STAY GREEN A BIT LONGER?

ONCE again to­day I have been stuck in the Silk Road traf­fic jam.

The road is al­ways very busy at the By­rons Lane lights and backs off on to the Silk Road to­wards the sta­tion lights.

A sim­ple so­lu­tion would be for the By­rons Lane lights to stay on green for 15 more sec­onds then this would help clear the road and cause lit­tle prob­lems for the few cars wait­ing to come out. Name and ad­dress sup­plied Un­for­tu­nately as coun­cils aren’t funded prop­erly by cen­tral govern­ment they re­sort to quick wins like this.

PLANS to re­vamp Mac­cles­field A&E re­vealed. East Cheshire NHS Trust is spend­ing £900k of govern­ment cash on ex­pand­ing A&E to cope with de­mand: Ian Brad­shaw: It’s not the govern­ment’s money, it’s tax-payer’s money. It’s our money. Laura Burgess: Fully agree, as a tax­payer I con­sider my­self a share­holder. Mandy Reed: Ab­so­lutely The govern­ment doesn’t make money. The govern­ment takes money. Laura Burgess: I’ve al­ways re­ceived an amaz­ing ser­vice from Mac­cles­field A&E even with it stretched to break­ing point. Imag­ine how fab­u­lous the ser­vice would be with in­creased fa­cil­i­ties – wow.
