Horrendously ugly

I READ with growing despair the self-congratulatory tone of the council's recycling plans, particularly the enforced return of the horrendously ugly 'wheelie-bin'.

I READ with growing despair the self-congratulatory tone of the council's recycling plans, particularly the enforced return of the horrendously ugly 'wheelie-bin'.

We are told that the council has made a full survey of every property in North Somerset and they'll tell us which 'solution' is right for us.

The nightmare scenario of hideous ranks of wheeled bins permanently on show in thousands of front gardens in every village and town in North Somerset must not be allowed to happen.

The previous Lib Dem council paid attention when Weston people rejected wheelie-bins a few years ago, and they stopped it.

This Conservative council just wants to impose its own will on the very people it pledged to serve.

It's the same with the controlled parking scheme for the town centre. The previous council took notice of residents' well-considered concerns that this would simply push drivers to park outside the controlled zone and clog up nearby residential streets; so they stopped it. This council is determined to push forward with the same ill-thought through proposals and residents will suffer because of their intransigence.

Perhaps now the Tropicana development has finally fallen through, the council can show it does have ears to hear after all. Weston simply wants a first-class swimming pool with a retractable roof.

Please forget about the repulsive wheelie bins you want and give us the splendid legacy of the swimming pool we want.
