I must disagree with Mick Dennison’s column (August 26) when he stated that he personally is not in favour of a retail project on the promenade at Morecambe”.
I feel that a retail park in Morecambe centre would be a massive breakthrough for work prospects in the area and will attract large retail outlets to consider venturing into the very heart of Morecambe.
A plan sympathetically drawn up that places retail at the rear of the site and with more tourist attractive incentives on the promenade would allow visitors to wander around stores while children could enjoy the many promenade facilities available nearby.
What could be better for our town than to visit retail outlets hitherto only available in places like Lancaster or Kendal thus avoiding long journeys on our congested roads that hinder all attempts to visit retail parks.
I cannot agree with you on this one Mr Dennison, a retail park would be a much needed blessing in disguise for Morecambe and the outlining areas.
