That does not mean that the building has to remain in its present condition. Redundant parts of the building can be adapted or put to other uses. Mr Sampson, in his previous letter, suggests how this might be done, citing the example of Eastbourne.

Does 1st East now accept the advantages of Lowestoft's central station, since Mr Kozlowski now writes about "development around the railway station" rather than relocating the station itself?
