ALTHOUGH I am very much in favour of a new larger supermarket being built in Ledbury – the town desperately needs one to cater for its continued growth – I cannot help feeling that the proposed superstore at Lawnside Road has been sited at completely the wrong location.
I cannot see how a store of this size could possibly function in such a congested area of town.
The months of disruption which would be caused as the development is being built is reason enough to oppose the proposed location, and the image of HGVs trying to access the store down narrow residential streets doesn’t bear thinking about.
I also feel that Ledbury does not need a new sports complex. The building housing the swimming pool and its accompanying gym will be perfectly serviceable for years to come once all the necessary repairs to the roof are carried out.
Any green space which the town still has left such as the Recreation Ground must be preserved.
Please, let’s see some common sense on this whole issue. Drop these impractical proposals, and get a new supermarket with a filling station built on the Galebreaker site opposite Homebase.
