Have Your Say: Past shows us way forward
A GREAT old picture of The Kingsway in the Post's Yesterdays this week (Post, Sept 25). Note the cars parked, full of shoppers and open shops.
A stark contrast to today where there is no parking, no shoppers and only a handful of shops left. Swansea needs to look back at access to shops and re open the city.
Rid Swansea of the bendy bus and the road system which only takes people away from the city.
We have a Premier League football team, the greatest beaches but a city centre looking more than sorry for itself.
Let's open the city to car access, reduce the business rates or give new shops free business rates for a couple of years, we have so many empty shops and enough start up businesses would quickly fill these given the right incentive.
Make the city interesting and shoppers will flow back to what was once a vibrant city.
It could and should be again if and only if the council attitude changes towards business.
The people of Swansea are hard working, friendly, proud and fun loving, they deserve a city centre to be proud of too.
