A Telephone Survey

Chris Black writes:“Rochford District Council have arranged a telephone survey to ask residents about their shopping habits, and as it happens I was phoned today! When I was asked what would make me shop in Rayleigh more I replied free parking on Saturday afternoons,? and a wider range of shops. (We do shop in Rayleigh quite a lot anyway)”.

  • well, one thing is certain Chris. No-one is ever going to starve to death in Rayleigh High St. Just from Crown Hill to Bellingham Lane alone there are now enough take-aways to feed the proverbial 5000 with some left-overs. I suppose it is better than boarded up shops, but I think a bit short sighted of the Council to let one particular retail section dominate quite so heavily.

  • And there is an application for yet one more coffee shop next to the police station. I think it is the case that there can be no objection to a shop changing what it sells.

  • Bruce,
    Whilst I understand yours, and others frustrations at the number of food / drink shops now in the High Rd my question is this: Imagine that YOU are investing part of the Smart millions in a business, just what would you open that could compete with on-line shopping ?

  • Could not suggest anything as a potential retail outlet in Rayleigh. But I agree with what you imply i.e. that there must be a demand for food/ drink cafes or they would not be in business.
