Letter: Stray - Opposition does you credit

The Stray
The Stray

Your headline, “It’s time to drop Stray plan”, leapt from page one like a shining light in a murky world.

Advertiser readers have had their say, overwhelmingly against the plan. In response, Harrogate Council has failed to suggest events which it and its commercially-driven pals might have in mind.

Shame on the council if it now goes ahead.

Your coverage does credit to local journalism. It is an illustration, in a dreadful age of fake news on so-called social media, of the value brought to society by mainstream newspapers which are informed, responsible - and free from official control.
