Kevin Barron and CISWO (the “owner” of the Miner’s Welfare) hosted a secret meeting with the Friends of Dinnington Miners Welfare and Dinnington Town Council last year.
The general public were not invited, indeed two members of the Friends group were thrown out before it started because Kevin doesn’t get on with them.
He does get on well with CISWO, however and the meeting agreed to give it’s blessing to the demolition of Park House (which was already wrecked) and a plan to use some of the greenbelt land down there for housing. Some of the funds from the housing may be given back to provide sports facilities, BUT there’s no written agreement or guarantee that this will happen.
The total farce of our green belt “consultation” with Rotherham Council is revealed when we view these plans for the welfare, prepared for CISWO as far back as 2010. They have been planning it for years and the opinion of Joe Public is not required as far as they are concerned!
1. Kevin Barron the ultimate champagne socialist rolling in riches while people live in poverty yards from his office door should get off his ass and involve the local community at large and ask that THEY want for Dinnington and the Welfare.
2. CISWO who should never have hoovered local assets up in the first place should GIVE THEM BACK to the people of Dinnington.
3. And Dinnington Town Council should stop behaving like a bunch of stooges and tell Barron and his ilk where to get off!
