No loss of leisure provision with Tesco

EDITOR – Commenting on John Mitchell’s letter (Leader February 22).

I recall at a previous meeting that Nigel Howells stated that the present sports centre was past its ‘best before date’ and needed replacing.

Tesco have undertaken to provide a new sports centre, which will be constructed before work begins on their planned store in Station Road.

So there will not be a loss of sports facilities prior to the new one being built. So far as I am aware, plans have not yet been prepared for the sports centre, so how Mr Mitchell can make criticism of it is beyond me.

It would now seem that the MAGLIN supporters are intent on discrediting Tesco’s bid in the hope that Lindum’s application may be enhanced.
