IT is rather sad that in the year 2018 our councils cannot provide a proper bus station with toilets and waiting room.

Indeed if it returned to its rightful place next to Firstsite it would bring wealth and prosperity to the area far greater than that of a hotel and student accommodation.

I respect Sir Bob Russell for standing up for the people of Colchester.

Who does Councillor Tim Young represent?

The controversial site belongs to the people of Colchester.

How do they want it developed?

It is for the benefit of all, not just hotel guests.

The council's plans would increase pollution in that area and anything built near the Roman wall has got to be of a more interesting design than what is proposed by Alumno.

Why are bus users treated like second class citizens? If the council want to encourage bus use it has to provide proper facilities.
