RE: Bus Shelter - Shillingstone Drive, John Pound House


Thank you, as you probable notice on your site visit the Bus Shelter on the opposite side of the road has a similar width of footpath and no problems, so am pleased like Anne that hopefully we don't have any difficulties with the shelter provider, which i understand will be one of the displaced shelters from the triangle, and as members we are happy to support any funding in the works required to place it in Chesildene drive, such a shelter as you know from Judy is well supported by residents and those who gather at St, Pauls Church close by.

We look forward to an early response, again thank you and James Duncan for the speedy attention you have given to this.

Dear Cllrs,

I met the warden - Judy on site at the end of last week.

The footway is relatively narrow but in my view a shelter could be placed there - even if it means the overhang is slightly over into their grounds.

I have to check that our shelter provider agrees with this view - as soon as I have met with them I will let you - and Judy know.

Mr Duncan,

Have been approached by the Warden at John Pounds House, Shillingstone Drive if consideration could be given for the placing of a Bus Shelter stop which is adjacent to the elderly persons home, as Judy does point out it is a well used stop, appreciate the initial costs, so if a small sum was to come from our fund to support the request, know my two colleagues would support, any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, Councillor Ron Whittaker

Hi to you all,

Hope you are all well, I am still recovering from the duck race at Easter, and my duck has still not come in.

I am wondering if you could help. The Residents at John Pound House have been talking about how a Bus Shelter on the House side would be really useful.

It is a well used stop, so it would not just be the Elderly and Disabled Residents but people from the area. When it is raining they get very wet.

Is there any way in which you think we could go forward on this.

Many thanks,

Judy Walker
