We don't need it

THE proposal being put forward for Lawnside will never come to fruition for all the reasons that other readers have already highlighted.
However, the fact that a proposal has been considered and consulted on will represent a significant part of a supermarket’s plans for developing an edgeof- town superstore.
One of the issues raised by Tesco’s and Sainsbury’s plans was the lack of consultation on alternative options for supermarket development in the town.
The Lawnside Road proposal is an alternative, albeit a flawed one.
It frightens me that an edge-of-town development is more likely as a result of Lawnside Road being dismissed as unworkable.
The town does not need a new supermarket, and I emphasise the word ‘need’.
The existing supermarkets can be upgraded and improved on their existing footprints to meet the demands and needs of the town.
