From my experience, there is no point in voicing your opinion of what we would like to see on the old AHS site.   We can come up with sensible ideas like housing, business use, new much needed hospita

The seat polishing suits in SIC offices are incapable of being involved in a "consultation" that goes any other way than not listening, or ignoring anything anybody says that doesn't fit in with their

^ Agreed, becoming an ex-Councillor via the ballot box is a fast track to permanent oblivion. Those who get too cosy and see it as a job for life would do well to remember that, nobody is ever to high

More feasibility studies and development plans and schemes will be needed.  Preferably done by their own members of the friends/family/Jarl Squad who conveniently offer this service.  Keeping it in-house is an obvious cost-cutting (*** cough pocket-lining cough **) method too.

Cynic?  Moi?

Boy, bring me more liquid gold. I need to flush the loo!

Apart from councelors and their family, possibly their neighbours and maybe their friends - if they actually have any :ponders:

I would suggest that you don't know many Shetland Councillors personally if you think they are all their to line their own pockets or anything else corrupt. I would also suggest you know little about Government procurement legislation or rules around appraisal and evaluation of projects. If you have evidence of wrongdoing then take it through proper channels. If not then I don't see why such wild accusations should be getting made in the first place.

Yun's splendid George. Du obviously doesna lik single sentence paragraphs afore du writes it in blue under aa dy posts! :-)

 

A paragraph can easily be a single sentence if it's dealing wee anidder subject. Du should mibee brush up on dee knowledge o grammar if du's going to be makin a song and dance aboot idder folks writing.

Maybe addressing site access would have been a smart first move. The New Road/Knab Road junction has always been a hell of a place to use, and won't get any better without extensive demolitions. Breiwick road is the only other viable access, and its narrow, with blind bends/summits and a less than pleasant junction at the Sletts.

 

Talking about building a pile of houses somewhere between the size of Sandveien and Nederdale with all the traffic occupants of that number will produce, never mind what's generated by anything else teh site may contain, is just going to make a road rage inducing snarl up.

 

Open up decent access as a first priority, then you can make the site in to anything you like, but leave as is and you might as well turn the whole thing in to a cemetery extension, as it'll be such a pain to get to/from nobody will want to hassle with it regardless of whatever is on the site.

 

Does the toon really need another 100 odd houses anyway, on top of however many hundred are supposedly already in the pipeline to urbanise most of the Staney Hill?
