How will visitors get to our Ocean City?
I HAD a good laugh at The Herald headline of March 6: 'Welcome to Britain's Ocean City'.
I am afraid Cllr Tudor Evans is living in cloud cuckoo land, for a start any visitors coming down here by train will find that if there is any flooding on the tracks they will not be able to get here and they may have to commute the rest of the journey by bus.
Then, if they come by bus they would find a bus station which looks like something out of a third world country.
The place is smelling of urine because they close all the toilets in the early evening meaning that for any late night travellers especially the elderly, this could be a big problem. The site is very untidy and unsafe at night.

If they come by car, they will find a city of potholes and a massive amount of speed cameras. This council is anti car, as it seems to want to rip off motorists for as much as possible.
If they fly they can only come as far as Exeter.
Visitors will also find a lot of empty shops, too many coffee shops and expensive restaurants (and the council is planning even more in the west end of the city) At the top of the town, we have an ugly shopping mall crammed full of expensive shops.
Go to Exeter and Cardiff to see what good shopping centres look like! The foreshore is a mess and down on the Barbican the toilets are an absolute disgrace.
We have a football team which is a joke, a £46m Life Centre which looks out of place and is expensive to use.
Of course the people of Plymouth had no say in it before it was built.
We have an incinerator pumping out muck into the air, being built in the middle of a housing area voted in by about six councillors who don't even live in the area. Yet again the people of Plymouth had no say in it. All this will make Plymouth a laughing stock.
Plymouth is a mess, and under this council and the last one too, we have been and always will be a mess.
From someone who is Plymouth born but not proud of our city the way it is now.
