COUNCIL could CPO ‘eyesore’ Grade II-listed Bacup mill. Bosses say Waterside Mill could undermine regeneration in the town without action (website, April 4) Karen Gibbons: Maybe they could do the same with the old bingo hall and the old Bacup hub. Kristann Louise: Tell you what’s an eyesore, Waterbarn Baptist church! Such a shame to see a beautiful church left in ruins. Gary Cunliffe: Yet again money for a CPO is being found while services get cut, so RBC and the Labour councillors blaming the cuts for lack of funds if they can start looking to find a couple of million to buy this site. Patrick Mannion: Yes, they are all below par of acceptance and hinder public perspective of Bacup. ●● Emma Carey with her Shining Star award
