Monoliths on the streets

Have they gone barking mad at County Hall!! Why do they want to erect (at great cost no doubt) such bloomin' ugly, enormous 'monoliths'! I'm all for providing some basic info for tourists but its not Crawley - its a historic county town - so lets have something a bit more appropriate to our street scene!!

so they are proposing to spend our money on a hideous gigantic map tby the war memorialo tell us about the nice historic view it will be worsening, instead of spending money on the dangerous collapsed road, around the memorial. Where are your Councillors when you need them?
It is actually laughable, and our Councillors, wherever they are, should be ashamed of themselves that it is even being proposed.
I hardly know anyone who doesn't have map and tourist information on their phone.

Great bring on the monoliths and close the 'never open at the weekend' Tourist Office. Sack the staff and rent the prime sited shop out for top rent. That's the plan anyway ?

I am wondering at what point all these people obsessed with signs will realise there are more signs than things that the signs are telling us about. Just count the number of signs in the High St, and take a look around town at the defunct ones that are never removed. I know of several that are so old, that there is nothing visible left on them!
We live in a world of technology where we need less signs, why would any Council want more?
They even have signs pointing at the largest , most hideous overbearing and visible building in the town...County Hall.

Border Control - I have always thought that the Tourist Information Centre was open on Saturday and Sunday. Which part of the weekend were you thinking it was closed ?

Give the County Council a break,that huge building,so nicely signposted is full of people.This scheme has probably given hundreds of them something to do.Just think how many meetings,memos,site visits and conferences can be generated by this idea.A consultancy firm(with no possible connection to any council executive)could be hired to do whatever consultants do. Face facts,the council has got to spend the money they take from us somehow.

There is even a sign pointing to the old police station. How long since it's been in North street now?

I've been in town on a bank holday Monday, the place was teeming with tourists looking for information and the tourist information office was indeed closed.

any half decent local councillor would be claiming credit for getting rid of old signs, but are ours are so inept, they can't even manage that. I would be impressed by a councillor saying loud and clear that there is no point having new signs until we get rid of some of the old ones, and open a tourist office at weekends. is it that hard?

Which Way - The Tourist Office IS open at the weekends, reduced hours in the winter admittedly but it is open.

She’s going to have to get there early and park on the outskirts
And still pee off the local residents
There’s no cheap... more
