A NEW ornate bus shelter is being built in Chaddesley Corbett on the A448 Bromsgrove to Kidderminster Road.

Worcestershire County Councillor for Chaddesley, Stephen Clee secured the funding.

"The parish council have been trying for many months to reach an agreement with the highways department at County Hall to provide additional bus shelters in the village,” he said. “I was delighted to step in and negotiated the location and funding for this shelter on behalf of Chaddesley Corbett Parish Council. It’s a really needy bus shelter and I hope it will be well used."

Delighterd to step in. SO once again after months of hard work byu other people. Stephen Clee pops up for an electioneering photo call 3 weeks before the local elections.

At the same time, this biased non journalistic newspaper suppresses free speech by refusing to allow Stephen Brown to submit alternative comment on a letter written by our MP.

We are getting more like North Korea everyday and the Shuttle is supporting it. We'll all be waving plastic posies soon while standing in neat offset rows so that we can all see our glorious perfect leaders standing at their alter

Oh god, can one imagine anything more ugly than 140 ft tall statues of Kim Jong Clee, and Kim jung Campion towering over us. Well, at least it will fit well with Tenko Towers.

Why are we wasting money on fancy bus shelters when there are so many craters in the roads? Is it because Mr Clee couldn't have such a nice photo next to some repaired potholes?

I guess the electorate that travel to Kidderminster will now be "in the bag". What about the ones that travel to Bromsgrove ? I'm at a loss as to understand why travellers going in one direction get to shelter from the elements but travellers going the other way don't. Also this new shelter is about a mile away from the new school site and the unofficial bus stop outside the Chaddesley Garage. A missed opportunity for the larger population of travellers perhaps. Talk about dabbling with soft issues. Looks like half a job done badly to me.

I passed the new school on the way into Bromsgrove on Saturday.

Why is it so far out of the village?

Doesn't it just encourage people to drive there and how safe is that main road for pupils attending, or their parents, or families with kids without cars?

What's with this continual building of public facilities outside town or village centres?

And I saw no bus stops outside the school, so are there plans for any? Maybe Mr Clee can get to work on that too as he was so successful on this issue.

Why didn,t the Parish Council pay for it as they do in all other areas. This means if u live in Cookley, you pay twice for bus shelters. one in Cookley through the parish precept and one for Chaddesley through the County finances. Disgusting.

Can't believe Stephen Clee's got them to take the post down about his belly! How vain can you get, does he think people will think even less of him because of it? I'm afraid that's not possible Stephen.
