Turn Civic Centre into a tourist attraction
WITH reference to the sale of the Civic Centre, we don't need it being turned into a hotel as we have the Holiday Inn just a few yards up the road.
The lower half of the Civic Centre would make a wonderful history museum depicting the history of Plymouth and surrounding areas, going back to the time of Sir Francis Drake.
There are still some artifacts on Drake's Island including cannons which could be housed in the museum. There could be a gift shop selling souvenirs such as DVDs and books. It is an ideal location as we have locals and visitors going up to Plymouth Hoe to watch events including sailing regattas. It would be a boost to the local economy and to jobs.
It is a brilliant idea about having a restaurant at the top. As visitors would have a panoramic view of the Hoe and other parts of Plymouth.

It would be excellent for local and surrounding areas of school children as a valuable educational subject for their history lessons. It is time Plymouth was put back on the map showing visitors what a fine historical city well worth visiting we have. Especially now Exeter is attracting new companies investing in their city.
So I would urge our Labour and Conservative MPs to get behind Viable in saving our airport and let their voices be heard in Westminster.
Finally I applaud the idea of buildings being spruced up, but what about the eyesore of empty shops coming down Western Approach from North Cross roundabout? Nearly all the lower half are boarded up where they have been vandalised.
