Derelict site next to St Helens Central Station is an eyesore

Derelict site next to station is an eyesore

First published in Letters by

WHAT a great shame it is that although we have a brand spanking new railway station at St Helens Central the first thing that visitors to the town see is a derelict site adjacent.

The site has been allowed to overgrow and is littered with rubbish.

My attempts to find out from St Helens Council as to what they intend to do with the site and when has been met with silence.

They have promised to clean up the site but nothing has happened.

How can anyone expect companies to invest in the town when the council cannot keep it looking as if someone cares.

Or is it that the council has abandoned all hope of making the town centre viable again? If that were a private landlord a notice would have been served to enforce the cleaning up.

A case of double standards.

perhaps they need the drugs centre to have a chance of cleaning up some of the people of the town who are ruining the reputation of the town by their actions. There area at the end of the canal at pocknet nook is an absolute disgrace with rubbish

I have said to sunshineandshowers before, how about we put this drugs centre on your doorstep. If the council did not actively attract these people to St Helens we would not have the problem to the same degree. Did you know the YMCA houses people that are actually banned from other towns? So why should we have them?????
