THE recent bad weather has shown how very much needed the Boscombe Sovereign Centre is.

Undercover and disabled-friendly, the only bad thing is that the parking is not free. This is why so many people will drive all the way to Castlepoint instead.

This can surely be rectified by introducing free parking and attracting new businesses by lowering the rents a little.

Indoor shopping areas are badly needed in our changeable climate. Losing them is surely not an option if you want people to shop locally and create jobs.

Tiny roomed high rise flats simply create the slums of the not too distant future.
