Main shopping street to be opened up to range of uses
Last updated at 10:09, Friday, 23 March 2012
WHITEHAVEN’S main shopping street is about to become ‘open house’ for a wider range of businesses – not just retail – with the aim to fill up King Street’s empty shops.
Have your say
I don't know who the 'council spokesman' is, but s/he should talk to their planners. It certainly is possible to restrict shops being changed to betting shops. The draft plan has a policy against it, and the Council can issue a direction to enforce it.
I hope there are safeguards in to stop every single empty unit being turned into a betting shop.
Observer, Whitehaven doesn't have a town council.
