EAST Cambs District Council should not confuse the centre of Ely with a shopping centre. It isn't one. It's a ragbag collection of oddments that you are unlikely to visit after a week's commute, even if you've had to pay for facilities to subsidise everyone else's park-and-ride. The council was happy enough to persuade people into buying properties in the area. Let it now provide the goods and services that residents expect. That includes, crucially, competition for Tesco, and shops in which you actually want to spend money.
