I AM appalled to read about the ECDC councillors' decision to allow traders onto our Jubilee Gardens. Is it their fiefdom? Who are these councillors? Do they even live in Ely?
What is the point in having a peaceful sensory public garden with a children's play area and band concerts if they are to compete with noisy, smelly (invariably diesel) vans and fast food cooking? Casual trading isn't allowed in the public gardens of nearby towns, even where roadways permit vehicle access. There are only public walkways onto our Jubilee Gardens.
Within a few minutes' walk of the gardens there are already (including a pub and a chippie) six rate paying venues selling refreshments. However if, for whatever reason, permission is granted for additional riverside trading it should be restricted to the nearby Pocket Park, which has the advantages of being under used, has vehicle access, and a prevailing wind blowing away from the city.
