I read with great amusement the big plan rolled out by james mccuiness about there so called
promises to local people, Okehampton certainly is not going to move forward until it has a new town council with new blood, and also same with the borough. The damage to the town was done along time ago under the present councils. Okehampton lost its market, this was the begining of the end for the town, and now everyone is sat around scratching their heads wondering why okehampton town centre is slowly being boarded up under everyones noses! This town lacks a good town council what we really need to do is vote in a complete new one because half the town councillors have been co opted on time and time again. Okehampton requires very badly new blood, with fresh ideas, and the determination to succeed, and take the town in the right direction that it should have been going years ago. Its ok people sitting around trying to put the world to right, its action that speaks louder than words. Employing a town manager is a good idea but first before a town manager is employed dont you think okehampton needs a strong town council to support this new manager. The thousands of pounds wasted on the gateway garden on crediton road look at the eyesore now. Mill road car park toilets closed, yet another blunder, thousands of pounds in okehampton wasted over the years which is nothing more than shameful, so we can all live in hope that a new town council will come to our aid soon.
