    NO PRIMARK; We don't want our beloved Newbury to host downmarket shops. Go to Swindon if you want that.

    Rock climbing / bouldering centre. Everyone I know has to travel to Newbury and Swindon for it so would be great to have one in Newbury.

    Either a quality department store or break it into smaller units, get West Berkshire Council to reduce its business rates and bring back some small independent stores and help make Newbury the thriving market town it once was. We have enough cheap tat shops already so really don't need another one in the form of Primark!

    What's the point - all the shops in shopping centres and high streets are just glorified and expensive showrooms for the under-taxed Amazon, and some other online stores. People examine the products in the shops, note the details, then go online to see if they can find it cheaper and most of the time Amazon will then get the business.
