Representations on New Local Plan Options - Where should retail and town centre needs be met?
COMMENT Mr John Martin
It is vitally important that Harborough retains its position of the largest market town remaining within the area. This cannot be achieved by allowing large out of town shopping facilities to be built at the cost of the prosperity of the smaller town centre privately owned retailer.
That we really need additional retail space is surprising as is mentioned in this section there is a noticeable increase in online and "click and collect" shopping
COMMENT Mr A Adcock
The lack of comparable retail space between Market Harborough and Lutterworth only goes to highlight the disdain shown by HDC to the needs of an enhanced Lutterworth in the light of all the possible expected housing and warehousing development!
