Smith street War memorial to be moved

Post by kat on Tue 27 Dec 2011, 10:22 am

Plans are in the pipe line to move this memorial.
it will be included in the wall on top of the sunken garden. dont know how they will manage this as the picture shows it where it would be .
By my reckoning the place is not big enough for it to sit in the space they give it
It needs funding for a start ,this will cost many thousnads of pounds . money we dont have so where will the funds come from?
this memorial is on a slope at the moment .. and is very uncomfortable for many who spend an hour there once a year.
Does this justify it being moved?
what are your thoughts on this ?
or is there a bigger picture here ?

No problem with it being moved but I hope they replace the motorbike parking.

Does it mention what will be done with the existing site?

So, there are plans for the area. Remove those hoodlums on their noisy bikes and there would be enough space for a posh restaurant.

I agree This'. Not necessary. Plenty of things that have much more useful priority, Electricity generating incinerator for a start and the proposed Cruise ship berth would be a very good earner.
