Open for business

CONGRATULATIONS to the members of Fenland District Council’s planning committee (New March eateries get go ahead, Citizen April 11) for refusing to be brow beaten by petitions which are just intended to stifle legitimate competition.

How would the owners of those takeaways have felt if petitions had been raised to stop them trading in the town originally?

I welcome Dominos as the first branch of a national chain of pizzerias to come to March and also the tea shop idea put forward by a local man with business interests in Chatteris.

I believe they will both bring enhanced standards and something different to the town and will demonstrate the views of councillors Murphy and Yeulett that March is truly ‘Open for Business’.
