On Wednesday Pocklington Town Centre was fully closed down to undertake repairs for the Tour De Yorkshire.
Town Centre businesses have understandably contacted me questioning the need to close the Town Centre fully for a day as this had a negative effect on their businesses.
It is rather ironic that a big selling point by ERYC for the Tour De Yorkshire is the positive effect on business.
As the preparations for the Tour De Yorkshire by ERYC have clearly had a negative effect on Pocklington business should a different route through the Town be considered for any such future events?
I have requested ERYC to look into ways of avoiding closing the Town Centre down in a similar way in future.
