I AM pleased and proud of the news that Baroness Scott has been selected to develop a long-term recovery plan for Kensington and Chelsea.

I am sure she would acknowledge this is in part due to the opportunities provided for her by the electorate of Wiltshire.

I would therefore urge her to consider the plight of Trowbridge. Other than a few developments such as the Odeon complex one could only describe the state of the town as bordering on tragic.

With the likelihood of another mass increase in housing in Trowbridge, it is essential that all those in positions of responsibility in the county and the town should come together to develop plans for long-term recovery for the town. The people of Trowbridge deserve inspiring and responsible leadership.
