If you think this will not affect us read on:

As part of Bradford Council proposals to try and slash £82 million from its budget, the Stockbridge Depot, off Royd Ings Avenue, could see its staff and equipment shifted elsewhere.

The report comments: “Winter maintenance operations would be significantly impacted by the reduction in operational bases, meaning longer times being necessary to grit the routes in the district, potentially meaning that areas in the north of the district may be untreated in periods of inclement weather.”

“Local Emergency Resilience Capacity could be completely compromised, with equipment and staff stuck at the other side of the city with the attendant risk to life and property.”

“What Bradford Council is doing is pulling everything into the middle of Bradford, so outlying parts of the district are suffering.

Yet again, you could not make it up!! Their FB page repeated itself again trying to make out it was Government cuts to blame. Yes, there is an element of truth in that, yes, the government have a lot to answer for, but the wastage and positively criminal squandering at Bradford met is staggering, let alone the lies they have told in the process!!!

I hope that the staff at the depot can find alternative employment and/or relocate with minimal disruption. These are not easy times, for anyone, without being screwed over by your employer.

30+ years ago I remember going to this depot and buying 1 ton of broken flagstones, to make a crazy paving, for next to nothing.

Plans to close the Stockbridge depot have been scrapped by cash-strapped Bradford Council.

But the local authority's top team is largely sticking by a major programme of cuts after its leader said it “can’t afford” to reverse them.

News of the U-turn over the Stockbridge site was one of the few concessions agreed by the executive yesterday.
