Budget secured but where’s the punt station?

The next meeting of interest was of the Strategy and Resources Scrutiny Committee on the 21st January 2008 Points raised in the agenda included city centre management planning implement a badging scheme for independent punt touts, and the apportioning of funds for a pontoon to constructed and licensed to independents at the “La Mimosa” punt station. Several independent punt operators sent a letter to the committee asking that language be changed to include reference to all touts, rather than just touts for independent punt operators. The letter also outlined potential problems for the “La Mimosa” station, relating to health and safety, disabled access and licensing terms. The letter was ignored by the city council. Also ignored was the fact that the city does not have vacant possession of the station.
