Minor things like signage and access design  need need planning but even if they are turned down they can appeal to higher bodies. Shops and pubs are licensed retail premises so they don't need to go through the hassle of change of use.

So we may well have a change of name for our town then

Tescofield - market town of the Crooked Spire and Tesco's!!

It's a cartoon Pete but again it's a political party (I assume Labour) telling me why I shouldn't vote for someone. It's almost an admission that they aren't any better just not quite as bad. OC I'm sorry about yours and your daughters issues but I suspect you are in the minority of people wrongly caught up in this.

Seems to be a lot of it around from what I heard off other disabled people JR.
I just think that it has been done too fast and very harsh which is why the innocents get in this.
There other concerns though about other issues which the current party are doing.

All of the parties tell us why we shouldn't vote for the others, they just play mind games don't they.

I like that Pam.  Glad you posted actually as I want a bit of work doing.  Will have to leave to the Spring now, but handy knowing someone for future reference.

Sorry Gerty another senior moment it's CLR landscapes !  :-[

So do you use a food bank? Pay the bedroom tax? Was crime, unemployment and the deficit not rising under labour? Did we not have immigrants before 2010? I didn't ask for a rant against the Tories (easy though that might be) I asked for specific examples where your life has been ruined. Not inconvenienced, not made a little but harder, ruined!!

My daughter does, despite having social care advise that we needed a two bedroom bungalow for help when needed during the night time.
What's happened - cuts to her original approved direct payments, so no money for her for care during the night should she need it.
I have to support her, so I either sleep at hers or she has to come and stay with us.
Problem with that is our home isn't as accessible for her as her bungalow.
I still work and as has happened on one occasion I had just finished a 2 day/night looking after a profoundly disabled child.
Daughter takes ill - ???
TBH I was knackered and the last thing I wanted was another 2 nights/days with hardly any sleep.

That's more than an inconvenience - it's a down right disgrace!

People have committed suicide - one in our village and many around the country - all to do with the bedroom tax and ESA assessments.
The current gov tightened up on this when they took over.

If the public want to blame someone it should be the property owners that sell to tesco. they don't have compulsory purchase powers

I was under the impression that retailers had to apply to the council to turn a building such as a pub into a shop is this not the case then.
Are you saying that CBC or North East Derbyshire don't have a say in this?

So are you saying Tesco can take over ( to be over the top) ALL the pubs within Chesterfield town centre ) and turn them into mini Tesco's and the CBC couldn't stop them?

Having supported a Y/P with mental health issues ( not my daughter ) over the last year which is still ongoing for diagnosis, never the less we are moving forward and there is definite improvement.
 I am hoping the Y/P hasn't picked up on this as this last years hard work may well go tits up.  >:(
Looks like I have to pay a visit !!

Maybe things are starting to be clearer as to why the ESA assessment form is so difficult to fill in - is it maybe so they can introduce a lower than the minimum wage for people who are not worth it!

Having shut down centers where disabled people could go to take part in certain activities and a few years back I think the West street Day Center ( now closed ) was used for some of our disabled community to actually take part in some packing of sweets. This would have given them self worth as well as some type of work to take part in.
That was terminated years ago, long before my involvement with West Street, which is why I can't add more information - maybe someone else can?
Also Remploy has gone - bad move!

The Conservative Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Work and Pensions suggested there was a group of people "who were not worth" the minimum national wage while answering questions at a party fringe event last month.

After being asked by a Conservative councillor about the disabled and the National Minimum Wage, Lord Freud replied:

"Now, there is a small…there is a group, and I know exactly who you mean, where actually as you say they’re not worth the full wage and actually I’m going to go and think about that particular issue, whether there is something we can do nationally, and without distorting the whole thing, which actually if someone wants to work for £2 an hour, and it’s working can we actually ... "

– Lord Freud

What an evil toss pot he is...

Why do the rich so desperately want to hurt the poor and infirm? Nasty Party!

-- and there we have it !
The real thoughts of how these people view the disabled population.
The reason 'why' the ESA form is set to trick and confuse people - because 'they are not worth it'
So we are told the remark was aimed at those with Mental Health Problems, the people who already feel worthless and in despair.

What they 'should' have been saying was lets look at this situation and try to 'help' these people regain their self worth.

Maybe now those who have been spouting about what nonsense this has all been, will open their eyes and ears. >:(

It's done!
We used CRL Landscape Gardeners and are pleased with the results. It will be easy maintenance for my daughter ( and hubby who has been taking our lawn mower down ) for the future.

We didn't want anything fancy, as you can see it's a very straight forward low maintenance garden now.
