Cheers, hop on board FFFFinlo.

We've debated this in the past, some of the Govt, local govt rents have been curiously low, Laxey Glen cafe would have required some 30k to cover the cost of refurbishment? What did it go for???

 

Banker, what part of my post has 'confused' you? The rent or the input required of new tenants????

You're presumably going to approve loans to these businesses or are you not that high up i banking????

They're not wild flowers, they're weeds Glad, grasses, dandelions, hogweed, Stinking Rogers. It's neglect and it makes the place look unkempt and untidy, IMHO.

Nothing changed then? 

I had about 100m of public grass verges outside my gaff in Ramsey. Cut them every week myself. Had to persistently pester RTC to come and cut the rest, which they made a complete mess of, using a strimmer and a blower.

Personally, I just don't get it how nobody from RTC sees stuff, they're taking enough in Rates.

The authority's obviously not responsible for everything that makes Ramsey look tired (such as the road surfaces and worn out road markings and kerb painting) but they could be looking after what they are or have taken on responsibility for.

Albert Terrace and Queens Pier Road walls (see pic) where the weeds are abundant are RTC properties and haven't been washed down or painted for years. The owners of some of the demolition sites could be told to get the places tidied up, Albert Rd School site for instance.

The eyes of the visiting public are going to be on these places, what sort of impression do they get?

I think 'eco bollocks' was the term for not dealing with term I used maybe Daffy has got to them.

well, there are 'eco' issues in dealing with weeds. Glyphosate is the most common systemic weedkiller available and widely used, but is believed to adversely affect the gut bacteria of bees, who are foraging on those dreadful dandelions that are blighting our island at this time of year. Also a known carcinogen.

I mean, take a look around the place, and you pick on the dandelions? Specist!

Now obviously 100m of grass verge should be a green desert rather then a part of a habitat corridor, order must be maintained, and all that.....

Well it’s a prime spot in centre of town, ideal for flats. Ramsey commissioners should be buying for social housing 

Its hardly a prime spot, its opposite a supermarket car park and backs onto a scruffy industrial estate.

Try selling that with Estate Agent speak............

It would make a good site for more industrial units

I can see it either being spilt into smaller units or new units being built, hopefully something that encourages new start ups or existing companies to expand, perhaps some of the shops in Parliament St would like a warehouse space?

How about building a railway station?

Dandelions are very under-rated.

In France, a family I stayed with had neat rows of them in their allotment - for use in salads.

You can make wine from the flowers.

Goldfinches love the seeds

What's not to like?
