*STOP THE BUILDING OF A NEW CIVIC CENTRE*
*RAISE POLITICAL AWARENESS IN STOKE-ON-TRENT*
During one of the worst recessions in living memory, impacting severely on Stoke-on-Trent, the city council have resolved to borrow AT LEAST £40m to build state of the art offices in Hanley abandoning the current Civic Centre in Stoke. There are grave concerns that there doesn't seem to be a robust business plan to justify the move to the Central Business District and its potential failure will leave the council taxpayers of Stoke-on-Trent with a massive bill which will affect the quality of life of future generations.
Meanwhile the ordinary people of Stoke-on-Trent continue to face the most severe hardship due to central and local government cuts. Loss of libraries, swimming pools, care homes, children's centres, community centres and much of the city's heritage are transforming the city into place people wish to leave. While officers and councillors talk about a city centre to rival Manchester and Birmingham at a time when the high street is in free fall, with online shopping and dating on the up, the quality of life of the city's residents continues to fall, as highlighted in the BBC4 documentary The Year The Town Hall Shrank.
If you support this cause's objectives please make your feelings known on the 23rd February by joining the MARCH ON STOKE from Hanley's NORSACA car park (behind the Victoria on the Square pub) to KINGSWAY Stoke. The March starts at 11.30 and should reach Kingsway about 12.
NOTE - THIS IS A RESIDENTS' MARCH - TOTALLY UNAFFILIATED TO ANY POLITICAL GROUP
OBJECTIVES / GOALS OF THIS GROUP
To remind councillors and officers that they work for us, not the reverse.
To remind councillors that it is they who should be driving policy in Stoke-on-Trent not unelected civil servants who often feel little sense of attachment with the city.
Halt the building of a new civic centre; the existing Civic Centre is fit for purpose.
Raise political awareness across Stoke-on-Trent so that in local elections ALL residents vote, first and foremost, for the person and not the party they represent
