I WRITE in support of the letter from Alan Burden.

It really is time our councillors stopped wasting our hard earned rates on little used cycle ways and fancy schemes which they have not thought through, got total public support for or costed all aimed at stopping the motorist.

I assume these councillors do not use cars at any time.

I want to see these councillors concentrate on things that matter and where in my view council money should be spent such as educating our children, social care, filling potholes, putting roads and pavements into a good condition etc. You cannot drive in a straight line down Parkway Drive due to potholes but if you know how to weave from one side to the other you are ok!

When I moved to Bournemouth in 1970 it was a beautiful town but successive councils have let it deteriorate.
