Let's NOT turn jobs away
But HELP our town centre!
Many have disliked the proposed development behind Queen Street. We understood why. A new theatre or cultural centre would be fantastic. But they cost money and can struggle to make money.
Now the heat is on the Lib Dem led Council to walk away. But if we do so, we lose a £40m investment and 60 new jobs. And we lose the vibrancy, footfall and extra spending power that students, families, visitors bring, and which will help many business keep open and able to employ others. We must if we can stay the course - to put jobs and business first.
