Impact on others

Sweeny Todd

As many of you know I don’t buy the local rag but am forwarded old copies which I sometimes scan before chucking in the bin. Catching my eye was an article about a pop up barber in Bingham Street.

It appears the Green Party candidate is disturbed that this new business was denied planning permission being outside the core retail area in Bangor. The article goes on to downgrade the rest of Bingham street and presumably other businesses.

The other businesses is what gained my attention. Although I have not used this particular business I am aware of another Barber less than a stones throw away. There is no mention in the article of this competing business or the fact that a barber has used the premises for many years. Nor is there any mention of the impact the new pop up barber will have on the existing business.
