Respondent: Mr Jason Pilley

Representation Summary:

I would like to make the comment that attempting to move shops out of the High Street towards outlying areas of the town would be a bad idea on many levels. For one thing it would increase people's reliance on cars, which isn't just environmentally unsound but is also an example of poor land-use planning, we ought to be making it easier for people to get to shops, not harder; we ought to be building up a strong central community, not dissipating it.
