Firstly I would like to congratulate your reporter Robert Cumber on an excellent piece of writing regarding the town centre. He has managed to put into words what a great number of Hounslow residents have wanted to say for a long time.

Please, please no more Pound shops. We need a decent Marks & Spencers instead of the discounted variety that we currently have in the high street. We need shops such as: The Pier, Next, Gap, Footlocker, Miss Selfridge, Zara, Mango, John Lewis. Could we perhaps have some upmarket cosmopolitan restaurants?

How about a little healthy competition for Asda - maybe Sainsbury's or Waitrose?

I can only imagine the home owners still resident in Holloway Street have not been offered a true-competitive price for their property in relation to today's property market.

The flats above Asda have done nothing for the area and are not aesthetically pleasing.

The Treaty Centre manager quite rightly points out the car park is full of potholes and fly-tipped rubbish. When relatives visit from abroad, I bypass Hounslow completely and take them shopping in Richmond or Kingston as I would be embarrassed to take them through the fly-tipped rubbish and general unkempt area.

We need at least a cinema and swimming pool which I am sure young people would appreciate since youth services have been cut in the past.

If this project is thought about seriously and planned properly using the expertise which I am sure is available, we can make Hounslow a town to be proud of.

After all if Ealing, Richmond and Kingston have achieved this, why not Hounslow too?
