Having a laugh with town plans

EDITOR – RE plans to build on Eastgate car park.

Is someone having a laugh? The Queen Street development when it happens (despite objections) will result in much-needed car parking space being lost. Queen Street car park is at full capacity on Fridays and Saturdays, and with the additional loss of existing staff and patient parking at the surgery is unjustifiable.

This proposed development is even more ridiculous.

What gives these ‘developers’ the right to ride roughshod over the wishes and livelihoods of the shopkeepers and residents of this town?

Any piece of spare land seems up for grabs.

With the sell-out, sorry sell-off, of the old swimming pool how about an underground car park with a skateboard park on top.

Develop that.
