Let tax­pay­ers de­cide lo­ca­tion of arena

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - Opinion -

WOULDN’T it be great, and very demo­cratic, if the peo­ple of Bris­tol were of­fered a say by the mayor in where the city’s new arena is to go?

Most peo­ple seem to pre­fer Tem­ple Meads as the site. The is­sue is cost.

If peo­ple want a cut-price, outof-town arena, not close to pub­lic trans­port, then fine, but at least let peo­ple see the facts and then de­cide. That would be open and demo­cratic.

If most tax­pay­ers in Bris­tol pre­fer Tem­ple Meads and don’t mind a bit more on their bills to pay for it, then why not? Alan Lip­ton
