Group to fight for new Ulverston supermarket
Last updated at 14:31, Monday, 18 June 2012
MANY people support plans for a new supermarket in Ulverston – but they need someone to speak up for them, according to one resident.
Have your say
The government want people to work so if that is the case ulverston council and the non local people that reside in my birth town of ulverston should adhere to this and build the supermarkets so people can have jobs it is simple as that their are more shops closing all the time blockbuster has only had a stay of execution for now their is no men's clothing shops at all anymore as junction closed down one butchers shop which is ridiculousley expensive considering we had load years ago fruit and veg shops we had quite a few of them years ago as well now we have one so who gets what and which jobs in ulverston and why should ulverstonians have pay nearly ÃÂÃÂ£6 for bus fares to go and work in barrow or Kendal we shoulsnt have to ulverston is just a town and we used to have a good trade years ago but all that has gone so now we must get these supermarkets built and now because we the people the true locals need jobs out of owner's that have only lived here for a short time never knew what it used to be like but I do so I ask the council to say yes and build them both now we need more than just sainsburys and whichever Robinson's want to build we need a lot more now
More shops more supermarkets and more jobs yes please yet isn't it funny how all them years ago when ulverston was a nice town then they decided to put a bloody motorway through the centre of ulverston just for barrow and for people to go and shop in barrow because it certainly didn't benefit ulverston having it put in so now we have to expand in the modern world the 1800s have long gone but it seems a lot of people want live like that well tough its nearly 2013 time for change and growth build the supermarkets in ulverston now because look how many shops have shut now and they haven't even built the supermarkets yet so who is to blame for shop closures now
I strongly feel that the argument has not been made from a true spirit of democracy.
If Sainsburys really want to be sure that they have majority support then it is quite feasible to hold a local referendum .
This referendum I suggest ought to take the form of three parts:
1) Do the electors of Ulverston desire an extra supermarket?
2) If yes, which site do you prefer?
c) Canal Head
d) None of the above
3) What type of supermarket would you prefer?
If 10% of the electors of Ulverston so wished it is my belief that they can demand a referendum and then the argument could be concluded once and for all.
