WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE ABOUT CONSTANTINE?

Atmosphere and Community Spirit

  • Some bigoted attitudes in the Parish Council
  • Them and Us”
  • Bit snobby at times
  • Would like more structured “getting to know’ new members of the community events

Services

  • Lack of Post Office

Outdoors

  • Health & Safety in the wild Bosahan Wood – where is the beautiful swing
  • Can we have a new swing with a notice saying own responsibility if accident occurs

Transport and Parking

  • Lack of a community Mini bus
  • Lack of public transport
  • Horrendous parking at entrance to Well Lane – more use made of car park
  • Parking at the top of Well Lane
  • Herringbone parking at shop end of Well Lane with cars overlapping pedestrian path so that pedestrians have to walk in the road where they are vulnerable to accidents. The original intention was that there would only be parallel parking at this point.

Housing

  • Lack of affordable eco-housing
