Letter: Road block wont help towns shops

There is now a road block on Leeds Road for the next six or more weeks.

This will cause serious traffic hold-ups, delays, frustration but, more important, loss of business to Harrogate shops.

The town centre and Leeds Road shops have been wrecked by the pandemic, the town centre badly affected by parking fees, and now, just when we may expect to see an improvement, the roads are closed or blocked.

I am personally hardly affected, but business people, visitors and shoppers are.

One seriously wonders why our councillors, elected to promote Harrogate, allow this, and even whether there is a plan to wreck the town.

I am sure I am not alone in being appalled.
