Oval: Own goal by the borough

IT came as no surprise to see that the Oval shopping cente will now never happen (LT, Mar 8).

In Burnley there are far too many big stores closing. How do the council expect a huge project like this to get off the ground?

The council have shot themselves in the foot.

Carl Harker, Burnley.

hi, i read your comments in the article above and find myself marvelling at the total hypocrisy of it all,they,!the lib/dems have made repeated claims of such things as the contractors are on site preparing for commencement in autumn,that was quite simply lieing,and worse they were allowed to make these claims through the pages of the local press,but when it comes to paying the contractor £30.000 to put planning permission in,the mind boggles,
but then to waive the return of the cash is indefencible, what are they hiding springs to mind,then we find out there isnt one penny left in the disabled amenities kitty,untill the new grant year in april, shows just where the priorities of this council truely lie,you should be campaigning against that sort of thing but oh not a bit of it
