Tory Council enters into long-term lease with PUFC allowing it 2 take ownership in the future. | South Werrington and North Gunthorpe | Scoop.it

Peterborough United and the city council have finally thrashed out a deal which will allow the start of revamp work at London Road stadium and lay the foundations for the club buying back the ground.

 

In April, Peterborough City Council said it hoped to start work on the demolition of the The Moye’s End stand during the summer.

 

Today, the council announced it has agreed terms which will see Peterborough United compensated for the loss of the away terrace while work is carried out, as well as agreeing a lease which will eventually allow for the club to take back ownership of the ground in the future.

 

The council has also issued its support for the club’s bid to introduce “Safe Standing” areas in the ground.

Bus ticket rise from £2.50 to £4.70! "I can’t afford almost £25 a week” says Welbourne mum

Bus ticket rise from £2.50 to £4.70! "I can’t afford almost £25 a week” says Welbourne mum | South Werrington and North Gunthorpe | Scoop.it

The fare changes affect youngsters using the Kimes Route 71 service from Queensgate to the college, which goes via Dogsthorpe, Paston Ridings, Gunthorpe and Werrington.

 

Dave Shelley, commercial director of Centrebus, said a solution proposed earlier this year for some pupils to use the council-subsidised 413 service had been rejected by the college as it required students to walk outside of the college grounds to catch it.

 

Wheras, Headteacher Mike Sandeman said the first the college had heard about the impending fare rise was last night after a parent emailed to complain. 

 

He said: “The service is a public bus service and we have no jurisdiction over it as it provides transport for children who attend the college but live outside the catchment area.”

Any PROBLEMS in Edinburgh Avenue (South Werrington) ???????

Any PROBLEMS in Edinburgh Avenue (South Werrington) ??????? | South Werrington and North Gunthorpe | Scoop.it

Edinburgh Avenue, one of the road located in the area commonly known locally as the Cathedrals, is generally a quiet place, but local LIB DEM ward councillor Darren Fower, says he still wants to hear from residents who live there about any concerns they may have?

 

Commenting, Darren said:

 

"Generally speaking, Edinburgh Avenue, does not have many issues, as the people who live down there are a good set of folks, many of whom have lived there for a number of years.

 

"That said, in recent years, I have receifved complaints of damage to front gardens and problems of litter. I am therefore keen to hear from residents who either live in Edinburgh Avenue or who pass through, about any issues they may have noticed."

A Safer Gunthorpe Road

A Safer Gunthorpe Road | South Werrington and North Gunthorpe | Scoop.it

In 2005 the Tory controlled City Council informed the South Werrington and North Gunthorpe FOCUS Team that a "Speed Management Strategy" along Gunthorpe Road would be implemented within the following financial year. Guess what? It wasn't! 

 

This has left local residents, schools, parents and businesses being forced to endure endless year-on-year increases in traffic and road safety concerns.
