ASDA DEFERRAL - MAILBOX
January 5 2012
Of course the Council want to defer their decision - anything that is good news for Newhaven needs delay - However, if neighbouring councils want to ship in their rubbish or their shi...sewerage - speed is of the essence!
What's to think about?
Whether we need more jobs? YES.
Whether we need more money coming into the area? YES.
Whether we need more houses for more people? YES.
In my opinion this decision should not have been deferred. Asda is helping, should this application be approved, to re-generate Newhaven and offer jobs and choice for the people of Newhaven and surrounding areas.
Cllr Andrew Hamilton
I fully support the development/re-generation of this area of Newhaven and would welcome the much needed local jobs and boost to the local economy. However, I am not convinced that the addition of yet another supermarket will benefit the town, or in fact, is needed. I just feel that this would be another example of taking business opportunities away from the town centre which is already in decline. What would happen to the Co-op - I don't see them continuing to trade with yet more opposition on the outskirts of town? This in turn has a detrimental effect on the elderly population who perhaps don't drive and are unable to shop anywhere else other than the Co-op or the town centre.
Mrs. Christine Smith
Resident of Newhaven since 1975

Isn't it obvious? Open the beach and they'll get their planning consent. Simples.
