SO there's a possibility of a department store and shops on two sites in Weston. With a growing population we probably need them. It would encourage people to shop here instead of travelling to Bristol/Taunton etc.If the council wants to encourage shoppers into Weston, why not create a central site for a bus station, so freeing Regent Street and the top part of High Street leading to Oxford Street from parked buses, and giving a better flow of traffic.Will councillors consider this suggestion, bearing in mind they asked for our opinions? Maybe not.P J MAIN - Axe Close, Weston
