Have your say

Congratulations and thanks to our town and borough councillors and the Whitby Gazette for their concern about the state of the old Town Hall in the Market Place.

1. What will be the extent of the repair work? What will it cost?

2. How long will it take? When will it begin?

3. If scaffolding is needed, will access to the Market Place be limited?

The 30 residents and business people who put their names and addresses to the letter of 14 August, supporting earlier appeals by Whitby Town Council, are awaiting for answers.

We are reasonable people, but evidence of the recent stone fall makes the work urgent.

Some limitations on vehicle movements may have to be accepted, but there should be no argument or delay in a matter of public safety.

Let’s get the work done!
