  1. Showers are shut at workplaces due to covid currently.
  2. I thought Planners argument was that much of the car traffic is not through traffic, but people driving < 1 mile. Get rid of the latter and the ring road will have throughput for long distance traffic?
  3. Well, let's see. All these same arguments were made by car users in the Netherlands in the 1970s. And look at them now. btw I'm a car user, but would rather cycle. I don't because of the dangers posed by other car users. So I would be happy if we could get more people to move over to cycling and have proper segregated cycle lanes.
  4. This crisis has brought to the fore that we have quite a big problem with public drunkenness, along with associated violence, in this country. Perhaps it will be a catalyst to finally confront the problem and change!
  5. Sheffield is a major pollution hot spot in the UK: https://www.leeds-live.co.uk/news/leeds-news/only-sheffield-worse-leeds-whole-16196277 From that point of view less car use would be a good thing
  6. Yep. My point was many pubs do not have customers who get horrendously drunk, rather they go for a few pints. The drunken yobs from city centres may target these pubs next if their usual haunts shut down. Hence if we want to keep some pubs open we need a huge clampdown on drunkards.
  7. need to target their customers too, as its them who don't care about social distancing. If their usual pubs shut, they may try and attend pubs with more sensible customers and ruin those places.
  8. don't touch your face, only way to be safe. Thoroughly disinfect your hands when you get home too. Might not be easy for many after they have had a few though.
  9. Covid is going to be around for years yet. I'm afraid its inevitable many businesses are simply unviable now. Lets hope new businesses can open to cater for people staying at home to generate new jobs.
  10. What sort exactly? Is it the sort of people one would not want to share a pub with?
  11. they usually sell within weeks and for well over the asking price. So there is definitely a shortage of houses available to buy.
  12. Looks like its off again in Beijing: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jun/16/beijing-coronavirus-outbreak-travel-restricted-china-severe-measures and its now more contagious than before: Yang Zhanqiu, a deputy director at the pathogen biology department at Wuhan University, told state media he believed the new outbreak involved a more contagious strain of the virus than the one that hit Wuhan at the beginning of the pandemic.
  13. I thought residents state they have used it as a community garden?
  14. Thats not quite true. If they have used it for more than a certain amount of time, and the landowner has never given permission nor tried to prevent usage, then from a legal standpoint they have a claim to continued use of the land. IIRC the length is 20 years.
