The Main Deal in Garforth has helped grow and support local businesses since 2014, and it encouraged the community to look local first. Garforth needs to add and improve it's night time offering, and by having an upmarket bar with food will only add to this much needed night time vibe. Keeping people local and using local helps give Garforth a sustainable future and the times it is open and the clientele it will bring will have NO impact on any other activities going on around it. We also like to encourage more independent businesses into the town. Having a balance is important and by adding this new venture, we start to set the balance back again. in my research I see, the applicant already runs a very successful business in another town which is proven to help bring local people together and eat locally which is very important for any town, as it encourages people to also use the other businesses, as it gives them another reasons to come in. We need a sustainable future for our families and younger generation. If planning allowed a huge Weatherspoons to be built that is next to a residential area with no parking facilities then this small bar requirement should be considered whole heartily.
If you agree with what I have added above, it would be nice to see more support of this new proposed independent business. Here’s the link - Today is the last day for comments
Until next week.............. Enjoy the sun
My name is Christine Thom, I came to live in Garforth nearly 22 years ago; you may have seen me around ?
