King Street consultation omits key details

Tory H&F council has announced a three day consultation in October for one of the biggest developments in the borough - the so-called King Street 'facelift' replacing the ugly town hall extension.

However the Tory propaganda announcing the consultation on 15-17 October fails to mention the controversial elements of the development. There is no reference to the demolition of the Thomas Pocklington Trust housing for blind people; there is no mention of the loss of the Virgin Cinema; and there is no mention of the promised Waitrose which may mean that the Tories have done a deal with Tesco.

Have your say next month before it's too late. But make sure H&F council tells you the whole story first.
