A call has been made for the derelict former Kwik Save site in Berwick to be demolished to make way for a coach parking facility.
Berwick Chamber of Trade chairman John Haswell believes it is the ideal town centre site, especially if a toilet block is built too.
“I see it as a win-win situation if we can get rid of a derelict building and replace it with a much-needed coach parking facility,” he said.
He has received backing from Northumberland County Council’s business chairman, Coun Scott Dickinson.
“I know the council has been looking at potential sites for a coach parking facility, including The Parade and Chapel Street but I think it would be much more preferable to tear down Kwik Save and put it there,” said Coun Dickinson.
He now plans to take the idea to Arch, the development company set up by the council, which has made the Kwiksave site one of its top priorities for the months ahead.
