WHY are so many people opposed to the Black Robin Farm Levelling Up project?

Resident Mike Ward has messaged his feelings:

“It is hardly surprising that your readers are not enthusiastic about the Black Robin Farm project.

You only have to look around town to see where £20million could be spent to the advantage of the residents who elect the council and pay local taxes.

If it works and is successful, and there is no guarantee of that, an arts centre might attract visitors as some point in the distant future. Meanwhile the bandstand requires an immediate large investment, the Sovereign Centre is tired and in need of improvement and Fort Fun is little more than a demolition site. There are plenty of other opportunities locally that would benefit residents.

The council should rethink its priorities.”
