Charlotte Flitney, Great Kimble

Keith Gomm, Stoke Mandeville
“They should be pulling the tower down, they could move the council staff out and put them in the country buildings. At least they are doing something to regenerate the High Street though.”

“We need a proper neighbourhood.”
Ian Hopping, Manor Park
“With the High Street dying we need to bring more people in.
