Investing in our green spaces

I read with interest the comments of David Hide in last week’s County Times. I must admit that I was surprised and disappointed at his perceptions of Horsham Park.

Impact on the neighbourhood

Impact on the neighbourhood

Whilst I agree the traffic around the Tesco Express store in Redkiln Way, Horsham, is a nightmare at times I feel the store is not wholly to blame (‘Congestion around store’, letters, October 11).

Allowing a Tesco fuel station/ convenience store to be built adjacent to the very busy Rusper Road / Crawley Road junction in Horsham was pretty daft.

Delighted Velo was cancelled

Delighted Velo was cancelled

Divine intervention. The god of common sense has overcome the god of selfishness and I, for one, was not trapped in my home for the best part of the day on Sunday by a perverse decision by a few West Sussex officials backed by a few councillors of its cabinet which was totally undemocratic and arrogantly sprung on a large section of us with absolutely no consultation.

Take lessons from Leicester

Take lessons from Leicester

While I applaud the idea of a fully pedestrianised area for the centre of Horsham I would ask the following: will it all be level paving, ie no kerbs to fall over, and if so will the construction of the paved surface be sufficiently robust to withstand the HGV delivery vehicles which need to access the centre?

Remove cars from town

Having read the article regarding the proposed changes to the Carfax and Blackhorse Way in Horsham (County Times September 6), I wholeheartedly agree that something needs to change.

Disappointed at beer removal

Disappointed at beer removal

I am disappointed that the Kings Arms in Horsham has bowed to another example of political correctness in removing a beer from their establishment due to complaints about a bar clip showing a picture of an old woman and a younger woman.

Are questions truly relevant?

Are questions truly relevant?

After seeing a display in Horsham Library about the rather vague proposal to site a new fire station at Highwood, close to the A24, I decided to submit my views on this via the West Sussex County Council website.

A&E hospital on Novartis site

With regards to recent reports in the West Sussex County Times re the current owners (West Sussex County Council) wanting to build a large number of houses after failing to implement their initial thoughts of a Science Park at the redundant Ciba Geigy /Novartis site in Parsonage Road, Horsham, I offer the following alternative as a possible idea.

Helping people with disability

Helping people with disability

As chairman of The British Polio Fellowship, representing 120,000 people with living with Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) in Britain, I read with interest moves afoot at Co-Op stores in the Channel Islands to offer people with hidden disabilities more support while they shop.
