Regarding the letter (May 27)by John Balch, strategic director NWES, about the new King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC).
Yes, this land was a wasteland. Instead of trying to show off internationally, we should first get the infrastructure right for the people of Lynn. You can’t have people coming from other places when this isn’t right, such as the NHS, education, roads, train service, pollution. A lot of things in the area need upgrading before you worry about attracting companies and people to Lynn.
Why did the council pass planning for this innovation centre when it knew the first priority was to build a large new surgery on this land for people in the south, west and town centre? So the council wouldn’t have to move the St James Street Surgery to North Lynn and create more problems for people living in Lynn.
