    TOILETS: Changing Places 2022? v TOURISM? v DISNEY COMES TO CHEDDAR!

    A New Year, the Leveller’ pre-eminent in ‘truth to power’ and its ‘absurdities’ to ‘banish the grey skies and the lingering shadow of COVID’! Sedgemoor District Council have plans afoot! The ‘realpolitik’ should be the ‘announcement’ from Longleat Estate to the re-opening of the ‘internationally’ renowned caves, pace Messrs Cox & Gough? On enquiry of Cheddar Parish Council, to be informed the only communication seen with Longleat Estateis that the caves may be open for Easter 2022? The Parish council were aware of the ‘rumours’ regarding the selling of the caves, but this has not ever been substantiated; perhaps ‘enlightenment’ from the ‘esteemed’ Marquesses of Bath and enquiry of Sedgemoor District Council’s Tourism ‘custodians’? Wookey Hole Caves having seized the ‘initiative’ on re-opening! Of course with the envisaged ‘demise’ of District Councils a ‘Pandora’s Box’ wherein culpability, the ‘immediate’ priority of ‘public’ toilet-facilities, an ‘indictment’ currently to the ‘international’ reputation’ again of which the Parish Council confirming, they suspect (although don’t know for sure) that the toilets will end up eventually in the Parish Council control, because of the demise of the District Councils, but for now there are no plans and it is more of a wait and ‘pee’ situation?

    The Police & Crime Commissioner in his ‘weekly-tweet’ takes credit to the resolution to the continuing ‘anti-social’ vandalism of which the Parish Council have been trying very hard to prevent, but it has been an uphill struggle and probably beyond even a local bobby sadly. ( Not always the case a ‘good’ copper’ resident in the village police station!) now devolved to a ‘multi-agency’ therein the deficit in many a ‘public’ abuse, the Commissioner conveniently omitted in his ‘tweets’ the police funded the ‘gabions’ in the car parks & throughout the Gorge and Longleat Estate installed them, at what cost?

    Whither the ‘elected/co-opted’ members across the existing ‘three’ tiers of local governance; having acquiescence in the closure of Cheddar Police Station, similarly Wells; subsequently ‘speculative’ property development, the question of a Freedom of Information ‘disclosure’ claw-back resolution, rather than the axiomatic raid on local authority precepts?
