SIR - How on earth can anybody think that more retail outlets can "revitalise" a town centre?

It will just be another place to generate rubbish, provide a daytime hangout for kids and at night - nothing.

This town could do with a few places for people to enjoy themselves.

How about some decent restaurants? A pub where you don't take your life in your hands after 8 o'clock would be an asset.

But no - as always commerce and consumerism will win the day - next I expect a mega Tesco in Broadwater Road.

Can't wait.
