It beggars belief to call Angel Pavement a prime site
I WOULD like to comment on a couple of the statements made under the headline High Street battlelines (Crow, January 17). When Jahir Hussain says we don t need any more restaurants, I trust that he is speaking for himself and not the rest of us Roystoni

When Jahir Hussain says we don't need any more restaurants, I trust that he is speaking for himself and not the rest of us Roystonians.
As I undertand it ,it is a fact that good restaurants always expand overall numbers regularly dining out.
For some time now it is the restaurants in Royston that have shown welcome signs of economic life, and, while we clearly don't need any more takeaways or burger bars, the prospect of one or more new eateries in town must only be one to look forward to.

It is awful ,resembling something from East Germany in the 1950s, and is a permanent deterrent from shopping in the town.
At the presentation of the new town plan last week,the first topic for comment around the room seemed to be that drastic action in terms of removal or total refurbishment was not only needed, but needed now, not in five or 10 years time. Is anything being done?
In fact, looking at it, it's easy to take Cllr Lindsay Davidson's point and wonder just what is going on here.
We hear a lot about transparency in all forms of government - perhaps we could have some here.
