Cogs of progress slow

I WAS heartened to read that Terry Kelly is looking into the proposed leisure development on the quayside in Lowestoft.

I remember several years ago there was talk about a new shopping outlet, maritime museum, restaurant and cinema.

I remember several years ago there was talk about a new shopping outlet, maritime museum, restaurant and cinema. It's such a shame that the cogs of progress are so slow.

Talk is one thing, action is another.

We do have a cinema which is very good value for money. The only disadvantage of it's situation is the lack of parking which I dare say puts a lot of people off going.

The choice of restaurants in Lowestoft is dwindling too, so again I dare say that any new development would be embraced with open arms from the youngest members of our community to the elderly.

This is a unique opportunity for the council to get it right.

If the third crossing can be built into the plans (with the help of 1st East) what a difference it could make to an area crying out for redevelopment.
