Stockport Council – The worst council in the world… ever?

Stockport Council Stockport Council are useless at the best of times, such as when they take areas of grass which soak up the rain, and replace them with pavement, so the water can’t go anywhere natural, and should normally go down the grids in the roads, but read on…

And now they clearly don’t care about anyone with a disability, since a vital pathway, by the railway in Edgeley – not far from the Stockport County football ground, has been unavailable to many residents for several weeks, unless you’re able-bodied and wishing to walk through with wellies, or don’t mind having wet feet all day.

Following the recent floods, due to a combination of heavy rain and the councils not bothering to rod the drains out any more (yeah, “weather”, not “climate change” for all the eco-hippies out there, such as the Extinction Rebelltion lot who hogged Deansgate in Manchester for four days, and could really have used a good air strike to sort them out), the pathway has been out of bounds.

The only solution to them, at present, is a 20-minute detour, LITERALLY all around the houses, since the nearest alternative is impassable if you’re in a wheelchair or mobility scooter as you must negotiate a very steep incline and decline either side of the reservoir.

And in the meantime, even if they did try to go down that pathway, then it’s also impassable due to the bricks that others have used as a ‘stepping stone’ situation to get across the water – but of course, one wrong step and you have wet feet. No thanks!

I reported this pathway to Stockport Council on July 31st. It’s now mid-September, and all that’s happened to resolve it, is that someone’s coming along and “inspected” it. Yep, it takes a bit more to fix something than to just LOOK at it(!)

You can see the full picture below, albeit before the bricks were added:
