well to be precise, £30,800, comprising: -
£12,000 to the freeholder for both pieces of land (the same owner), consider how much the entire Railway Pub car park is worth based on those prices!
£ 2,100 to the Railway Hotel for "other costs"
£16,700 (other costs!) made to Josh Robinson excavations, still waiting to see what those are for
the fact that the mid-section remains unchanged is due to the building on Josh Robinson Excavations land, a building for which planning permission might be questionable and is currently being looked into by Stockport's planning department.
Incidentally, the plans submitted for the scheme to the Marple Area Committee didn't show the building in question and suggest that the widenining of the pavement would be of the entire length, their decision being taken on that basis. it would have made sense to proceed on that basis.
I don't yet have a total cost for the project, but at least two workmen for 9 weeks (18 man weeks) plus equipment, design costs and materials don't come cheap, especially building stone walls.
Given the mid-section is essentially a bottleneck and unchanged, in what way do you feel the cost is justified Wheels and how does this benefit the CT payer?
