Let's create a
movement! It's time to reclaim the Westgate hotel and restore it to
its rightful place as a symbol of civic ownership. We cannot let
Newport's history be forgotten, especially the pivotal role it
played in the chartist riots.
The preservation of
our heritage is of utmost importance, the Westgate hotel stands as
a testament to the birthplace of modern democracy. It embodies the
values of political beliefs, desires, and the pursuit of openness
and transparency in our democratic processes.
In today's world,
where our civic life has lost its centrality, we must act. Let us
come together and reclaim the Westgate hotel, transforming it into
a space that serves the people. Imagine a place where the mayor of
Newport resides, where general enquiry offices cater to the needs
of our citizens, and where meeting rooms provide a platform for our
councillors to engage with the community.
This is not just about
preserving history; it's about advancing democracy. By taking back
the Westgate hotel through a compulsory purchase order, we can
ensure that this historic landmark becomes a vibrant centre of
civic activity, accessible to all. Let us unite to save the
Westgate, preserve our past, and shape a brighter future for
Newport. Together, we can make a difference!
What say ye Councillor
Mudd, yea or nay.
