Untidy view from bus; Your say.

I RECENTLY travelled into Stockton via Norton Road, on the bus.

Between the Buffs Club and Church Road - what a depressing and untidy view.

There is one shop, one bookmaker's and one public house open. All the rest have either shutters down or metal sheets on windows and doors.

Any newcomers to the town passing this area must think, what have we come to? I suggest, if money was available to erect a wooden screen, made out of recycled wood, the full length of this section of Norton Road and paint it, with trees, bushes etc, to make the area a lot better to look at.

I hope I am wrong, but I can see this type of empty shop etc, not only in Stockton, but other towns also, being with us for years to come.

If nothing is done, it will look a lot worse as time goes on.
