“I feel there should be a dedicated purpose built space (incl. soft play area) for parent and baby/toddler groups. These sessions have been vital for us not only for our child but for my mental well-being and socialising with others.”

“Adequate parking MUST be provided to avoid the surrounding area becoming gridlocked. That can only be achieved through  the provision of a large underground car park.”

“It’s already fit for purpose. The area, roads, parking and city do not need more congestion. Why not put money into the already existing Eastney swimming pool?”

“It would be lovely to retain the community hub and warm welcome feel at the centre and to have a range of affordable activities for families to engage with. It would be great to see the cafe expanded as it is currently small and popular.”
