I SEE, due to popular vote, the decision not to pedestrianise South Street has been taken. All in all that vote took no time at all and the correct outcome happened. Yet, why could this voting system not be done with Vearse Farm. If the people had had an option to vote against it, I am sure it would not have gone through. Instead, we had to rely on “local” councillors to make the wrong decision for us.
