Huntingdon, as it is on route to/from work. Bury as it's a good location and I meet up with friends.

The overall quality of food and other commodities are excellent.

Can't wait.

I WENT to see the plans at the Lamb Hotel and I am all for it coming to Ely, but nothing has been passed yet. With 470 cars parking places, traffic lights and extra road lighting, plus easy access to walk in to Ely and a bus service to and from the store this seems like a real shot in the arm for the people of Ely. It is good news but we have long way to go yet, before a brick can be laid.

I AM amazed that anyone could be considering building a Sainsbury's supermarket near the sorting office down the lovely and peaceful riverside in Ely. What is happening to Ely? Have they not considered all the traffic that already comes down Broad Street and when the train barriers are down it is even worse. I completely agree that Ely needs another supermarket but why that location when there is all the other sides of Ely to build on and why ruin the tranquil side of Ely. I walk my dog behind where the proposed building will be and my walk will be filled with more traffic, crashing of trolleys and the normal hustle and bustle of a busy supermarket. What about the poor residents, if the supermarket intends to keep up with Tesco, it will be open long hours, and residents will have to put up with the noise and extra volume of traffic. I have family in Willow Walk who are desperately worried about the value of their house as the properties round there are small but what sells them is the wonderful peaceful location, which will be destroyed if they build there. Why can't they re-think their site. It is just crazy.
