Do we need so many restau­rants?

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

I read your story about the ap­pli­ca­tion for a restau­rant, cafe, bars in the ground floor of Trafal­gar House (De­vel­oper’s Plan For Three New Restau­rants, KE, Jan­uary 28).

I’ve heard of giv­ing peo­ple op­tions, but eight restau­rants in the pro­posed and nearby El­wick Square de­vel­op­ment, then more in the Trafal­gar House space? Have de­vel­op­ers run out of ideas? How about turn­ing the build­ing from the for­mer Ash­ford Tile Cen­tre and Tiny Tots baby shop into an ice skat­ing rink or a roller skat­ing space? It would be ideal for all ages, would keep peo­ple fit and would fit in with the El­wick Place de­vel­op­ment.

Peo­ple could then park on the El­wick site and use the restau­rants af­ter skat­ing, and as there is go­ing to be a new col­lege at the other end of El­wick Road with lots of young peo­ple study­ing there, I’m sure they would love to use it. Fred­die Cle­ments, Ash­ford
