Keep our assets

I believe housing on the Regis Centre plot would be catastrophic.

My UK and foreign visitors have appreciated many of our town’s qualities but bemoan the lack of green space on the eastern seafront.

How will flats above chains, making Bognor Regis a clone of much elsewhere, bring the tourists we need?

I strongly support the idea of keeping the car park and building an iconic terraced garden above it with a strong architect-designed feature at the top – for instance, an up-and-down spiral bench with climbing challenges, a modern and larger version perhaps of the mound at Arnold Circus in Bethnal Green.

The Regis Centre plot is valuable and will become increasingly so.

Please don’t let Arun fritter away more of our town’s assets to developers.
