I SEE that Bob Redwood (Letters, August 24) does not like my “give it a try” observation.
From his letter, Mr Redwood appears to want a free-for-all in York city centre. Cars, lorries and buses in Lendal, Coney Street, New Street, Davygate, Goodramgate, etc, at any time of the day or night. That is what his proposal implies.
York city centre is overrun with polluting vehicles (take a look at the CO2 monitor in Gillygate) and it is my view that they must be reduced. Lendal Bridge closure is an option – it may not work, but give it a try.
As to Mr Redwood’s comments about the smoking ban, if it was hitting the licensed trade so much, why have three new outlets been given permission to trade within the Walmgate/Colliergate area within the last five months?
Err...and in my local, within the city walls, trade has increased.
