COUNCILLOR WARNS OF CLIFF FALL DANGER ON SANDOWN TO SHANKLIN REVETMENT

Those enjoying an autumnal walk between Sandown and Shanklin are being urged to be mindful of the potential for falling debris in the vicinity of Littlestairs Road in Lake.

Parish councillor Adrian Whittaker has raised the alarm that a section of cliff is starting to crumble, resulting in metal railings falling into the undergrowth below.

More railings and large sections of wood are now about to fall away near to the steps from Littlestairs Road.

The situation has been reported to Island Roads and the Isle of Wight Council.

The footpath above has been closed for sometime, but the revetment below remains open to those crossing The Bay.

Whilst our Isle grows smaller, more is to be built upon it adding to the loss of beauty.

Building new properties near cliff paths is very dodgy!

The properties have been there for 70+ years. Where did you get new builds from??

Most visitors are not nasty people, so to wish harm on such is unkind.

I don’t want them here either, as unless you are ‘making’ out of them why would you, but to wish people harm for just wanting a holiday break is a bit mean.

At ‘least’ they go home again, and not burden us with themselves to be permanently housed, educated, treated, feed and then breed us into their crime, overcrowding and eventual poverty.

Plenty worse people about, as all will discover once the masse buildings are filled to over capacity.

Vote this council out next time we have the chance to do so.

Unless we can rid ourselves of all political councillors and have all Independents, then nothing will change by voting one group or the other in.

Whilst that is partly true, to leave the same party ‘in’ then increases their feeling that they ‘are’ doing the right thing, otherwise people would have shown such at the ballot box. And they grow ever more arrogant and do as they see fit, believing that they ‘can do no wrong’ Then you get the huge, real risk of having any who are corrupt keeping their ‘links’ to developers, and other businesses intact. If new blood replaces the old, the ‘risk’ of still having corruption is still there, BUT importantly it takes ‘time’ to find out who they can, and can’t do immoral or illegal deals with, so keeps corruption to a minimum for us council tax payers. Some of these top people have serious question marks over them and need to go, as when a close knit group becomes a large close knit group then ‘proving’ any wrong doings… Read more »
