If Newhaven ‘needs’ another supermarket, and I don’t believe it really does, then wouldn’t it be an idea to put it in the town centre to attract more shoppers, rather than the areas currently proposed which will lead to more people travelling outside the town centre?
Where might we put one, I hear you ask. Well, the two upper floors of the town centre car park are rarely used, so what about building on these?
The area may not be large enough for a Tesco or a Morrisons, but maybe one of the smaller food retailers might be interested.
