The catalyst we’ve needed for years

I AM in favour of the new idea of a marina on the Halifax Road site.

For years Todmorden has been missing out on potential tourist business and I think that a marina adds a pleasant environment rather than another supermarket...which can only ever look like a supermarket.

The idea of a new hotel (with a possible small conference centre?) is also a good idea as it will make new events possible.

To attract tourists we need to up our game in the town. A new marina and the investment that goes with it could well be the catalyst the town has needed for years.
