Gazette readers have been responding to plans for a new Costa, Aldi and Marstons pub in a major new retail development. The plans for the new St Johns Garden Centre off Roundswell Roundabout have been the subject of a contentious debate on our Facebook page. Garden centre owners Nick and Simon Oliver told the Gazette the planning application for the £10million development is expected in the new year. Emjay Edgy said on Facebook: Will be lovely to have a new St Johns. Dont know about the rest - more than enough supermarkets and coffee shops already. And Dan Harvey added: Sounds great. But some were less positive about the idea of an Aldi or Costa Coffee. Nicola Cadogan said: Stupid idea. We dont need anymore supermarkets and coffee shops, and traffic will get worse than it already is... And Wendy McCartney added: Weve already got two Costas plus the one in Tesco. How about a different coffee shop? Others raised concerns about the volume of cars in the area, with Maureen Sobey saying: Where will all the traffic go? What do you think about the plans? Would you like to see this development go ahead? Join the debate on our Facebook page here.
