Plans would benefit town
THE regeneration company 1st East seems concerned about Asda's proposition for its three-phase plans regarding its site on Horn Hill. Having a mezzanine level built on its present store would be attractive to its clientele with more potential customers being drawn to the store.

Having a mezzanine level built on its present store would be attractive to its clientele with more potential customers being drawn to the store. This,of course, would be beneficial to the company and shouldn't upset anyone.
There are adequate car parking spaces to cope with the possible influx. The more people who use Asda would, I'm sure, benefit the town centre shops with it being just a few hundred yards away.
In my opinion, the factory outlet should be razed to the ground and the filling station built in its place. That would mean the three phases would be self-contained.
Now what about the traffic? A slip road could be put in place from the filling station into Belvedere Road controlled by traffic lights. A prime example of this is the exit from Asda's Yarmouth store, an excellent innovation. This would also help alleviate the traffic on the adjoining roundabout.
The near derelict site between the Asda site and the bascule bridge could be used for recreational purposes and what I think would bring more shoppers into the town would be a FREE car park - possibly tree-lined!
