Snowplough and gritters county hall car park

apologies for not moving on from ice and snow subject, but on Sunday afternoon I walked (well, slid) up the twitten that runs alongside county hall. There were 4 or 5 blokes with shovels and grit AND a small catapillar snowplough thing clearing snow and ice from county hall car park. Something very wrong with that scene.

Can you imagine how much grief Highways would get if their bosses couldn't park in the subsidised car park on Monday. You can just imagine the 'operative' in his overly heated portacabin at somewhere like Cripps Corner depot deciding whether to allow a village safe access to the B2116 versus keeping his boss happy (it is bonus time after all!) - not a tough decision!
Keep paying your taxes!

There was a liar from the Local Government Association on Radio 4 this morning saying everything was fine and that anyone complaining anywhere in England was wrong. Brilliant eh?

I would ask ESCC if their own car park is included in their prioirity list of places needing salt, and if so why the car park of a closed building takes priority of the main pedestrian routes in the active public centre of a County Town?

I wonder why no one from ESCC comes on here to defend themselves?
You would think someone would tell them of these posts eh...

Doesn't Brighton have a special person who tweets etc? waste of money, but what about ESCC's communications officer? Do you think they can use a PC?

Meanwhile, on Monday ESCC's failure to do anything about the roads on the Nevill meant that we didn't get our bins emptied or recycling collected, and won't get our bins done next Monday either (bank holiday). By then there will be two weeks' rubbish plus extra because it's Christmas and the local rats, cats and foxes will have scattered most of it across the bloody pavements.
Both councils are equally ferking useless imo.

In my area of Lewes, Furniture Now always leave it for a month over Christmas and new Year. It's maddening because the boxes get full and then we go to the amenity tip. Apparently FN refuse to do it and we miss out every year at this time, I believe in Seaford they don't miss a turn.

I have often wondered to what degree the extra pollution caused by the cars held up by the FN van outweighs the pollution saved by the FN van being electric.

We got held up for about ten minutes in Spences Lane the other week by the FN truck who, rather than pulling into a parking space to let the queue of four cars get past, moved along the middle of the road a couple of metres at a time. God forbid their collectors have to walk an extra couple of yards carrying heavy, empty plastic bottles eh?

And when do we get our next rubbish collection - they didn't turn up today ? why not and why no word on the website or xmas holiday notification ? We thought Lambeth council were bad enough - we were wrong !!!!

For gods sake get back to London, you are so bloody annoying. They turn up a day late after a bank holiday. I'll get them to deliver a train ticket to Lambeth when come to pick up your eco friendly bottles, and recycled wrapping paper. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!

So where should everyone else go who complains about anything on this forum, JIm Royle ? We just couldn't find any information about the next collection post Christmas, and I find that inefficient and annoying when our council tax is 500 quid a year more. So much for the so-called efficiencies of Tory councils. And nice of you to be so helpful and welcoming though, hope I never meet you in person.

On rubbish/recycling collections. I've got them from the back page of "District Link" which LDC sends to every household. Also, there is a link on the home page of LDC's website which allows you to key in your address/postcode to find out. These two sources tell you all you need to know and have done for quite a while
