    One has to suspect that Councillor Pert may not be a regular cyclist...

    "There is significant investment by the county council in cycling, which is why we want to see people ditching the motor car and using cycle ways, public transport and legs. It’s right we should have some cycle ways – that way it’s safer and we’re not mixing pedestrians with cyclists."

    It's quite obviously a committee that scrutinises the wellbeing of some undefined community, what else could it be?

    You could, perhaps, argue that the rather futile cycle lanes up each side of Lichfield Road, over the railway bridge, where you would be cycling if the white lines weren't there. are not "mixing cyclists with pedestrians", due to the kerb - but, other than that, I'm stuck to think of another in Stafford.

    Thanks for clearing that up. Ever thought of a career in politics? You'd do well.

    So to recap...

    Stafford Borough Council is set to renew its existing Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) in December...

    And "the existing town centre PSPOs, which aim to prevent nuisance behaviour in designated areas, already restrict alcohol consumption in the street".

    But the intention is to extend them, in "new measures", to include "a ban on cycling, roller skating, skateboarding and scooters in designated areas".

    Which presumably, in a continuation of the aim to prevent nuisance behaviour, means now that "cycling, roller skating and scooters", is unequivocally and in all circumstances 'nuisance behaviour'.

    In designated areas.

    At the same time that e-scooter trials begin.

    In those designated areas.

    Do you remember when people talked about 'joined-up' Government? It almost seemed possible for one beautiful decade.

    Shift the scrotes using their own gear off the streets and bring in stuff we can profit from, seems standard tory practice?

    I suspect being run by the people that run the hotel will help

    Not if you believe the reviews of the hotel it won't.
