He went on to say it “will be short-term pain for traders during building work, but long-term gain”.

Perhaps David Blackburn will explain to the traders of Bridge Street, to local hoteliers, and to those who will find it difficult, if not impossible, to park in the Bridge Street car park, etc, how and when that long-term gain will be achieved.
