IN reply to the letter "Tourists get priority" (October 17), I also agree that the Arc Light project is commendable.

Regarding the house in Burnholme Avenue, as well as being within easy reach of three schools, it is also immediately behind a supermarket which is easily accessible down a snicket by the side of the house.

This sells alcohol until 11pm six nights a week and until 10.30pm on a Sunday. Surely this is another reason why this property is unsuitable.

Mrs N Gillon,

Bad Bargain Lane,

Burnholme, York.
