Letter: Council may scrap the Riverside development

Date published: 04 January 2018


Dear Editor,

Just seen the news story about the idea the council may scrap the Riverside development.

http://www.rochdaleonline.co.uk/news-features/2/news-headlines/115091/council-to-consider-scrapping-town-centre-riverside-development

In my opinion excluding the news media from the meeting or members of the public is pathetic.

As a news media I think you have every right to be there to report the meeting as it happens, as it is public money they are using for projects like this.

Looks like some members of the council tend to forget this is a democracy.

It is just my opinion but as a local news media I think it is a scandal you cannot be at the meeting.

Yours,

Kenneth Hall
