Answers needed on Tesco's store plan; Mailbag.

I DO hope that every interested person will visit the Holmfirth Library and inspect the six or seven volumes and other documentation which together represent the Tesco case for the Midlothian Garage site.

I fear that they will find themselves as baffled as no doubt the Kirklees Planners are by this mass of verbiage - surely Tesco should be required to present their case in a manner which the public is likely to comprehend? I have been in the business myself and still find it very difficult - even impossible - to sort the wheat from the chaff.

All sorts of extraneous matters are covered with bland generalities, but simple questions such as how is the retail floor to be supported? And how is the problem of different levels on this old tip to be overcome? How does one get up the 20 or so feet from the car parking level to the retail floor and, even more important, how to get down again when loaded with the mountain of purchases which Tesco will sell you? Have our local councillors carefully studied all these documents? If not, then how can they possibly vote on the proposal?
