Lack of car parking in Todmorden is a major problem, and hindrance to any improvement in the town.
The best use of the site in question would be a medium height multi storey car park. This would service the railway station, business people and shoppers alike and relieve congestion in the town centre and nearby.
I’m sure that the finance for this could be found once it is realised that it would be an investment for the future prosperity of Todmorden. Let’s not hear of ‘saving heritage buildings’ as both the Ormroyd Centre and old picture house are crumbling eyesores of no great historical or architectural interest.
