SO WE may lose the Italian Gardens to create more shops? Great. Does this mean I will have another complete set of card shop, mobile phone shop, charity shop and a bakery to enjoy just like every other damn shop in this town? Yes, we need more shops, no

SO WE may lose the Italian Gardens to create more shops? Great. Does this mean I will have another complete set of card shop, mobile phone shop, charity shop and a bakery to enjoy just like every other damn shop in this town? Yes, we need more shops, no, we don't want to lose one of the few nice looking areas of the centre, more so when the council actually sorts the fountain out.There are plenty of places around Weston that could be improved. The Carlton Street/Dolphin Square area is a prime example. Why not invest some money and finish the work done during the 1960s to create a shopping area there? Parking is close by, access is easy and there is barely a traffic light in sight.Or how about letting the people who did the original slum clearance loose on the council offices?NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
