Why I'm NOT backing Plymouth for the City of Culture bid 2017
Plymouth is dying. You only have to take a look at the vast amount of empty shopping units, the state of the roads, the decay of the Hoe seafront. It is ok for the Councillors to have these plans that do not come to fruitation, and I applaud the City Centre Manager for his vision, but it is embarrassing to have an open retail unit next to several closed units. The City Centre, even Mutley Plain has a plague of charity shops and coffee shops, sometimes next to each other.
Plymouth's roads are in great need of resurfacing, with pot holes which make the streets look like a third world City.
The Hoe Seafront is in great need of some tender, loving care and its continuous decay and lack of funding would have even Sir Francis Drake turning in his grave.
To gain the City of Culture award, the City needs to raise the standard, to give the impression that we are better than those who are competing against us. Whilst we have a Council that seems to spend more time squabbling and trying to outwit each other's Political Party, and those Councillors that you only see when they want your vote, they need to act now. Action not words! We need to do away with the same old fuddy-duddies who have tried, and failed to run a City successfully, and replace them with non-political members who have vision for the City, and not those who are Councillors just to claim expenses.
