Dear Sirs


Coppergate Rejection

There is a middle road between the would-be developers of Coppergate and their opponents. I hope the developers will interpret the rejection of their plan as a need to make some significant modifications instead of the derisory, cosmetic changes offered.

Developers have for too long been able to impose their schemes on communities. In future they must listen to the objections and avoid the narrow focus on the interest of their firm. It is not enough to go through motions of listening. Such ‘consultations’ are a democratic sham.

On Thursday, the revised proposals for Germany Beck will be revealed to the public. This might give us a measure of developer’s willingness to accommodate the recommendations of those who have to live with the consequences of their grand projects.

I hope would-be developers and our democratic representatives have taken note of this example of people power.

Yours sincerely

Chas Jones
