Workington's “drab” northern entrance is in line for a major facelift, after leading councillor Barbara Cannon announced ambitions to create a modern gateway into the town.
Have your say
I'd say making Workington look much nicer is more important and and easier task than raising employment Gary.
If you make an area more appealing then that may very well attract more business to the area. Plus, it's all very well mocking the art installations around town (I know that's the cool thing to do) but compared to how the town looked before the redevelopment it's a massive improvement.
You could make a nice park on the site of the old dog track. All it would take would be some inspirational imagination followed by some major landscaping. Dam the Derwent below the bridge and create a large boating lake and leisure area with picnic area and a pub.Then we knock down the abattoir west of the new bridge and landscape that whole area too.
Why not build another statue of a lion like the one by the bus station, or another Nelson Column like opposite M&S or we could commission another company like Shepleys to commission rusty shileds like the ones coming into lillyhall, Why does councillor cannon ask for our help when as usual the council will decide how to spend or waste the towns money like the Tesco fiasco, pherhaps they can can commission out of the county contractors to devise something like they placed the order on the college extension on a company from the North East thatw ay we could pay even more money and see money foing out of the county once again, we need to think carefully before we vote these people in in future as they promise every thing but deliver nothing, what about providing employment opportunities for the youngsters instead of these hair brain schemes
