The proposals for the redevelopment of the St Margaret’s site seem wholly in keeping with the surrounding area and appear to fulfil a number of worthwhile objects.
I am delighted public use of the hall is not included.
Midhurst does not need a second-hand hall on a busy road with no parking facilities.
What we require is a purpose-built hall with good toilets and ample parking spaces, such as those enjoyed by many surrounding villages and small towns.
For an increasingly-elderly population, ample parking is crucially important.
What a tragic waste of an opportunity the Grange development represents.
In Victorian times, such halls were often built by public subscription.
Maybe we should return to this idea?
