The borough council ignores expert, paid-for, advice

Eleven years ago the council paid – with our money – consultants to advise on strengthening the town’s ‘retail offer’.

One of the consultants’ recommendations referred to the High Street and said:  “…its attractiveness to national multiple retailers will be limited if traffic continues to use the street. In our view, pedestrianisation would enhance the amenity of High Street and hold the promise of strengthening it as a retail destination.”

That seems clear enough.  But did the council follow the advice?  We all know the answer to that!  Can residents have their money back, please, SHBC?

(It would be interesting to find out whether the study achieved ANYTHING.  We suspect that it didn’t.)
