Have your say

Editor – Regarding the proposed Golf Road Development in Mablethorpe.

Do I live in Mablethorpe? – Yes.

Have I lived in Mablethorpe more than a couple of years? – Yes, I moved here nearly 40 years ago.

Will I be affected by the proposed development on Golf Road? – Yes, I live adjacent to the proposed area.

Have I seen any other proposed developments turned down over the years? – Yes most certainly.

Do I shop in Mablethorpe? – Yes, every day.

Do I support local Mablethorpe businesses? – Yes, I strongly believe in keeping it local.

Am I in favour of the proposed Golf Road development? – Yes, most definitely.

Why? Because I believe we need more housing choices in Mablethorpe.

I believe we need more social and affordable housing in Mablethorpe.

I believe the development will create jobs both during and after the building stage.

I believe in competition between businesses as we all know competition drives prices down.

I believe we need another large supermarket to compete with the Co-op store.

I believe we need another service station to give ‘us locals’ a choice of where to buy the cheapest fuel for our cars.

I believe we need to have a family pub and restaurant on this development again to widen our ‘consumer choices’.

We cannot keep turning the developers away.

And, finally, I ask this question of those people who are against allowing more people to move to our town: Why is it ok for you to live here or for you to have moved here and yet it is not ok for others to do the same?
