School to be shut. Library closed. No jobs. No hope. For those living off investments, a huge decline in shares. Pensions - who knows? Meanwhile the council will spend and rates will go up.

Swanage. Visit for a nice day out. But don't move here, unless you can afford to retire here.

Come on! Library only closed for refurbishment. Don't spread gloom and doom where not necessary.

Just as well council spending goes on or there would be even more decline

I must say swanage is just a old tired British seaside town that had failed to move with the times.

If you are young about all you can look forward to is working in a bar or a shop if there is any left.

I mean can anyone in there right mind think that the Mowlem or whatever it is called helps the town It should have been knocked down forty years ago it's awful.

The whole point is that people come here because Swanage has not "moved with the times". If you would rather live somewhere with a cloned town centre there are plenty to choose from. At least the Mowlem gives us something to agree about. its ghastly. A strange purbeckian take on brutal moderism.

So will the mobile library have copies of Purbeck District Councils Core Strategy Pre-Submission Consultation document available for people to look at?

Yes

Work has started. There are guys in hard hats and sounds of concrete breaking.

What are they actually doing? It's a lot of money to spend on such a relatively small building.

(I don't live in Swanage, but used to - so just interested in hearing how the library will be refurbished)

Is it possible to show the dates of the comments and not just the times?

Yes, I think I've managed to do that. Thanks for the suggestion.
