The man about to become leader of Carlisle City Council has pledged to keep the streets clean and to cut youth unemployment.
Have your say
Pete, parking couldnt be easier in Carlisle.And the parking on castle street is entirely owned by the Highways Authority, which is Cumbria County Council. You do realise that there are two councils that serve Carlisle?Nah, probably not.One other thing. A council is there to represent the whole city, not vociferous grabbing special interest groups.It listens at election times. This time the people of Carlisle wanted a change and got one. I do hope the labour council do not listen to agitators, malcontents and those who post on here and write letters to newspapers airing their ill-informed grievances but listen to voters who put them there are election time.
NOW THAT LABOUR HAS BEEN ELECTED IN CARLISLE
JOE SAVE THE CITY MONEY BY HAVING ONLY 1 COUNCILLOR FOR EACH WARD, LETS SEE YOU REDUCE THERE EXPENCES.AND LETS HAVE BOTCHERGATE OPENED UP TO TRAFFIC AGAIN AT WEEKENDS.
I don't think it is quite true that Council doesn't own car parking decisions...what about the Disabled Parking that was done away with outside Hoopers/Bulloughs despite outrage from Disability Groups at the time i seem to recall and also Cathedral,fact is the Council ignored these pleas by the people whom it serves. Coumcil is there to make decisions on behalf of us the peoples is it not? So who owns the land then ultimately? land is the peoples it was taken from us all but people don't realise this...Taxed to the hilt and made to pay to park that is when there are any roads free to park on in the streets nearby shops.
