I feel sorry for Mr Eatessami and Mr Hussain, who must be struggling with the fact that the Council has the brass neck to say both their buildings, now tiled, are not in keeping with their surroundings, when not 50 yards from both of these places, buildings are in such a state of disrepair, that they are a danger.
At least they are trading, and most of Mr Eatessami’s neighbours have gone to the wall.Nearly all the other shops there are empty. They say these buildings are wrong but not realise that the white monster erected over Westgate isn’t in keeping with anything around it either. And may I ask, is the newest building in Broad St, in keeping with its neighbour, our historic Town Hall? How long can all the fast food places survive when there is nothing to draw people to that end of town, even the car park isn’t ready. Yet they are ready to pull down perfectly fine buildings, less that 50 years old, to build newer, all singing, all dancing buildings, to bring us into line with larger towns and cites around us. Bring your own, our own, houses into order, before saying others are so out of line.
