You now own the strand

Postby smoked out » Tue May 02, 2017 4:39 pm

Sefton Council have bought the strand , with a loan , it therefore cost council tax payers nothing ?? , wonder who is going to pay the loan back , maybe they are doing as joe Anderson and Liverpool council and going into property speculation , running a borough without any problems that need fixing they have decided that the Strand "lame duck for years " shopping centre can be fixed by them and no doubt will bring in a huge income to help reduce the council tax residents will need to pay .

the problem with the strand is the price of bus fares to expensive so a lot of people on a low budget wont go and the price of the car parks I always drive to a retail park or a super store free parking go the strand a couple of times a year now the same as saint johns market in town a lot of shops empty

the problem with the strand is parking charges why go there when you can park free at asda aldi ect why stop cars going past the front people want picking up with larger items or a big shop. should be the first hour and half free for parking then charge after that lots of people wont go in to the city because of parking charges

I would visit The Strand more often. The parking is the problem so I hardly ever visit there for a shopping experience.

Also you can't drive along the front of the Strand until the evening.

I just go to Asda and Aldi for the free parking and shop there instead.

Quick and Easy shopping at discounted prices.

The Strand serves as a social and economic hub for the Bootle community. Mothers and daughters meet there to shop and a coffee. You see plenty of mothers pushing prams, which would indicate that they've probably walked there.

If they had have gone to Asda or a retail park, they would have probably drove or got a taxi, thus stopping them from getting exercise. It gives them a reason to walk.

The shops and banks probably employ many from the surrounding area, which provides financial stability to many families. It gives individuals the opportunity to start a business, like the gents hairdresser by where Costa's chippie used to be.

The downside is that you have to pay a couple of quid to park your car in their car park for easy access. Really? The chance are that you would pay that for a basic coffee in Costa or for a pint in Wetherspoons.
