Central bus station is essential to our city
4:14pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Letters
WHY is no one listening to the wise councillor who suggests that the council buys the bus station themselves?
After all they have retrieved money from selling properties and the cash paid back from the Icelandic banks. Why not put a fraction of this into the purchase of the bus station and stop these additional bus havens around our streets?
A central bus station is essential to our city.
I say to our elected councillors listen now to our frustrated shopkeepers and bewildered pedestrians, before it’s to late. So buy it, tidy it up and rent it out to the bus and national coach companies.
With no alternatives, it's as good as money in the bank.

AS Salisbury bus station is such an asset to the city and surrounding districts, could Wiltshire Council have put a block on the sale and saved all the worry?
Perhaps a preservation order or making it a listed building.
Maybe it’s not too late to act.

I CANNOT understand why Wiltshire Council has to provide new bus stops in Salisbury and Amesbury, paid for by our council tax. Surely Wilts and Dorset should pay instead of walking away with a nice fat cheque in their pockets from the sale of the bus stations?
