How about a Marina and Undercover Attractions for Barry
Far too much dithering, and meanderings, and not enough focus on 2 or 3 major projects for Barry. I despair.
My idea is to re-energise Barry Regeneration, more inclusive group, more private sector players, more community groups, all political leaders. Then, hold a conference - not a talking shop - and identify STRATEGIC aims and Top 5 Projects that will deliver those aims. Then everyone must state what they are going to do to help deliver those STRATEGIC aims. This needs to be more big picture, big project focussed.
We have successfully managed to lose momentum on LDP Collins Undercover Attractions for Barry Island, without a valid supported evidenced reason - non-existent "risk assessments" contrary to stated Policies. Happy to debate that statement with anyone.
We have not even got through stage 1 of the largest Bid process for Regeneration in Wales. Therefore, doing what we have always done is not an option. Blaming Bid Processes is just deflection. Let's face up to the truth, the Bid came in the bottom 11 of 22 Local Authority Bids. Hard lessons must not only be learnt, but also applied. This is a sharp wake-up call. Time to change and move ahead.
