Tell us the truth

First published in Letters

AFTER reading the comments of Dave Hodkinson on last week’s front page I would like to agree with him.

I recently walked the town centre counting empty shops and found approximately 31.

What everyone would like to know is what plan is in place to revitalise the centre of town and fill these shops.

Is demolition imminent of the vacant shops, to make way for even bigger shops.

We are not against bigger shops but we definitely need the smaller, individual shops to provide the all-important, non, mass produced items which will satisfy all needs.

Can anyone, in the know, please tell us public, what the plans are for the centre and publish it in the Guardian, so that we can be assured of a vibrant, re-vitalised shopping throughout Northwich.

Tell us the truth, no matter what it is, we need to know now.

strange. they tell us there's plenty of work about for those who get up to look for it, and yet all these shops lie empty? where's smug Dave? what about Ian Duncan Smith and his welfare to work plan? seems Northwich is akin to the latest Tory manifesto - a blank canvass, all the promises tumbled out with the wind?

Instead of spending 500K to fill in the subways in Northwich leave them be, and spend the money on a regeneration program like Winsford. Waitrose was built to bring people to the town, LOTS MORE is needed to bring Northwich town centre up to scratch, we need bigger and better shops and LOWER council tax rates to enable this to happen. You people on the council, PULL YOUR FINGERS OUT and SEE WHATS UNDER YOUR NOSES.
