Big­ger and bet­ter?

RE: Sup­port grow­ing for Peter­bor­ough Gar­den Park su­per­mar­ket scheme, May 1.

Not sure what’s wrong with Sains­bury’s at Oxney Road. On the other hand, maybe it’s go­ing to be a big­ger and im­proved Sains­bury’s with more park­ing. Then close Oxney Road.

GET REAL will do in the short term is cre­ate 300 jobs i.e. while the build­ing work is car­ried out.

Most of those jobs will come from out­side Peter­bor­ough and when the work is fin­ished, they will go and you will be left with the same prob­lem as all the other so-called good news on the job front – nowhere near as many jobs as claimed.

The res­i­dents who are sup­port­ing this will then go on to re­alise that the in­crease in traf­fic and pol­lu­tion is not what they wanted, along with the in­crease in rub­bish and su­per­mar­ket plas­tic bags float­ing around the streets. Not to men­tion the mas­sive lor­ries that will be de­liv­er­ing goods to the store, day and night. How many more su­per­mar­kets do we need? Get some man­u­fac­tur­ing back into the area, not an­other Waittesc­mor­risasda. Also, ask your­selves where the de­vel­op­ment money the coun­cil will be paid is go­ing to go Oh! Yeah! Wait – an­other hair-brained scheme – per­haps a foun­tain in the mid­dle of the A47.


My own be­lief is that car parks should be free. Charg­ing sim­ply dis­cour­ages peo­ple to go else­where or on the in­ter­net.

How­ever, park­ing re­stric­tions are in place, and they should be fol­lowed.

I won’t travel through Mill­field be­cause of the dou­ble parked cars, park­ing on junc­tions and on foot­paths.

I see no rea­son for cars and vans to be con­tin­u­ally driv­ing around Cathe­dral Square dur­ing the day.

St Peter’s Road should not be a place where peo­ple park, with the driver re­main­ing in­side ready to move on sight of a park­ing of­fi­cer com­ing along Don’t even think about the rail­way sta­tion.
