MADAM - I see that the council are planning to spend thousands of pounds landscaping the area around Church Green, having spent a huge amount resurfacing Alcester Street.

I would like to know how much this has increased footfall and spending in the town and how much of an increase they forecast will gained from this latest plan.

I think the money would be better spent either updating the bus station to give passengers somewhere warm and draught free whilst waiting for a bus and demolishing the old buildings opposite and putting a covered retail walkway from the train to the bus station or moving the bus station next to the train station to make a passenger hub and using the old bus station for a covered market.
