I have studied the Draft Plan in detail and am in full agreement with the
methodology and process. Specifically around the retail section I welcome
anything that will re-energise the High Street. From experience I know that the
High Street is a focus of any community and I have seen at first hand how a
community can lose it's heart by losing this. My main concern is that once
approved we ensure that all initiatives and proposals are initiated rather than
remaining on the page! In terms of the supermarkets I am completely opposed to
the Sainsburys proposal as it is totally driven by self-interest and the
retailers bottom-line. Whilst I understand the concerns around the Waitrose
proposal on balance I believe that this will be good for the town, and am
encouraged by Waitrose's very obvious desire to work with the town, as evidenced
to me in several conversations with them
