1. if you pay council tax , the council take the money out of the council tax to pay for the road signs


Yeah, where else would it come from?

2. The earback scheme ( presently adopted in europe ) will be adopted if the bypass is sucessfull . Money is loaned   and paid back via the taxpayer - this will take many years

conclusion is you and I as the TAXPAYER foot the bill    


Again how else would you expect a road to be paid for?

As far as i can see the only other alternative to the tax payer paying for a new road is private investment and tolls?

Would you rather it were to be a toll road?

Not trying to wear you down, simply trying to get an answer.

Although that is proving difficult, i've asked the same basic question twice and still not had an answer!

Hi, I guess the point about who pays for it comes down to the fact that yes, we would foot the bill of course through Council Tax etc but the Earnback Scheme (as far as anyone can really understand it and lots have tried) is predacated on loaning the money from future business rates that will be generated by economic growth. The problem is that we're in a flat (or depressed0 economy unlikely to show any real growth for years to come. So if these rates can't be collected to offset the bill, what happens? Stockport Council has failed to give us an answer, but it is undoubtedly a dangerous trade off which will likely lead us into enormous debt. That would then certainly lead to more cutting of council frontline services and I suppose it boils down to what you want your money to be spent on - an expensive road which will increase congestion on the A6 and A34, increase air pollution in areas already under Air Quality Management because levels are so high - or fixing the roads we have, emptying our bins, improving classrooms for our kids etc etc

Silly Coleman. noroadm thinks that the Leprechauns should pay for it?



Or maybe Harry Enfield?

I remember watching re-runs of that. It was a show about people that lack the mental or physical ability to 'fight' with normal people of sound mind and body.[*]

Do you remember watching 'Geordie Racer', 'Through the Dragon's Eye' or 'Sesame Street' as a matter of interest? I strongly doubt it.
