Wednesday's meeting has led to a big discussion around town that tends to come back to one question: if the centre of Frome isn't to be remodelled around the retail development St James's Investments have in mind, what's the alternative - particularly when it comes to the Saxonvale site? In the past few days, we've heard talk about new green industries, sustainable visitor attractions... you name it.
Time, then, for an open thread. All thoughts, suggestions - however vague or tentative - gratefully accepted. In time, any alternative will have to be worked into something detailed and convincing. So this is only intended as a conversation-starter, but it's a good idea to get it moving.
