Sorry we cannot attend the meeting but we are thoroughly behind your plan and totally against the large-scale developments proposed by the council.
We have been active followers of the proposed developments at the the swimming baths site for many years. We usually try to attend meetings where
possible. Our feelings are that some small-scale, public amenity, development is much preferable (putting it mildly) to the council’s only apparent route of more housing – putting additional load on the town centre
and denying residents (and potential visitors) access to our riverside.
Ideally we would like to see an eventual development where the riverside vista is opened up from the High Street but appreciate the enormity of such a scheme. Your proposed small-scall approach would not preclude that in the future.
Thanks for all your efforts on behalf of local people and we are happy to offer any support that we can. We hope the meeting goes well and look forward to reading comments about it.
