No com­par­i­son be­tween clo­sures

Gloucestershire Echo - - LETTERS & OPINION -

✒ THE let­ter by Brian Hughes (Let­ters, Novem­ber 1) needs a re­sponse as I am not too young to re­mem­ber the clo­sure of the Prom­e­nade out­side Cavendish House.

There is no com­par­i­son be­tween the level of dis­agree­ment be­tween that clo­sure and Boots Cor­ner.

I have never seen so many ad­verse com­ments in so­cial me­dia and in the press as con­cern­ing the clo­sure of Boots Cor­ner and it is no ex­ag­ger­a­tion to say it is around 95 per cent against.

It can­not be in any way a po­lit­i­cal is­sue when so many peo­ple are against the clo­sure so please do not bring our MP into the ar­gu­ment.

I can­not see how any­one can say the town cen­tre has been greatly im­proved by the re­moval of traf­fic when buses and taxis can still use Boots Cor­ner.

I re­spect­fully sug­gest Brian Hughes reads all the ad­verse feed­back be­fore com­ment­ing fur­ther.

One point I do agree is that we all know this is never go­ing to be an 18month ex­per­i­ment as the coun­cil­lors don’t lis­ten to pub­lic opin­ion. Chris Owen Chel­tenham
