IT does seem bit of a cheek for the Bournemouth Council to suggest, through your letters papers, that Dave Wells should cost some of his ideas to improve the appearance of the town, when he must be one of the highest council taxpayers in the area with all the property his company owes. In other words, he is paying their wages.

I am also pleased Mr Wells and I seem to be on the similar lines of thought, perhaps because we both are genuine local people.
