Cake shop owner told to 'quit town'

Kidderminster Shuttle: SHOCKED: Kimberley Bennett, who was left stunned after being told to shut her shop and move out of Bewdley. Buy this photo SHOCKED: Kimberley Bennett, who was left stunned after being told to shut her shop and move out of Bewdley.

A BEWDLEY councillor has left a bitter taste in the mouth of a cake shop boss after suggesting she quit her shop and leave town in a row of over a new medical centre.

Labour’s Paul Gittins reduced Kimberley Bennett to tears after he told her she could shut her successful Load Street business when she voiced her concerns about the loss of parking the new surgery would create .

Miss Bennett, who opened Kimmy Loves Cake Bake Shop just over two years ago, spoke to Mr Gittins about her fears after a Wyre Forest District Council planning meeting on Tuesday last week, at which the centre was given the go-ahead.

Miss Bennett had been furious the town council had backed the ambitious plans despite fears from businesses that it could hit trade in the town but was left stunned by Mr Gittins’ response .

“I went to the planning meeting to hear the decision on the medical centre and after that I got into conversation with Paul Gittins and when I told him how concerned I was about the new medical centre he said ‘if you don’t like it, put your house on the market, leave the town and shut your business’, at which point I was quite upset and I walked away,” Miss Bennett explained.

“I was really upset because I have worked really, really hard to get this business up and running. It wasn’t very nice for him to tell me to just leave . I was shocked and surprised at his reaction.

“I have lived here for six years. I bought my first home here and I love it here so when someone tells you to leave it’s almost like you’re not important but all businesses are important in the town.”

Miss Bennett, who ran her business from her Dowles Road home for 18 months before opening her cake shop, said Mr Gittins had apologised to her the following day, adding she was still disappointed the former mayor stood by what he had said.

“It’ s hard to set up a business and do well, “ she explained. “As a town councillor and someone who represents a particular party he should know that that’s not the type of thing you should say to people .

“You don’t expect anyone to say that to you, never mind someone who is supposed to be representing the town.”

She said she still had “massive concerns” about the effect the new medical centre would have on her trade when it is built in the town’s Dog Lane car park, taking up 99 parking spaces.

She added: “It’s really important that people have parking in the town. I was disappointed that the town council backed the decision for the medical centre.

"Despite people who expressed their concerns about parking issues, they still decided it was a good thing.”

Mr Gittins, recently named as a Diamond Champion for dedicating his time to others, said: “I have spoken to Kimberley. I have apologised and as far as I’m concerned it’s the end of the matter .”

While I totally agree that it was poor way to respond from such a well-known local councillor, there's a much wider issue here.

If residents and retailers cast their minds back two years they will remember the uproar caused when the medical centre proposed a move to a grassland site in Wribbenhall. This was mainly from retailers unhappy that it would have taken shoppers out of the town.

The majority agreed and so another solution on Dog Lane has been found. And still there are comments like this from unhappy retailers about the town centre solution!

Maybe it should be remembered that it could move out of Bewdley altogether! Where would that leave us?

This story has really annoyed me. Setting up a successful business in the Wyre Forest area (or indeed anywhere) is no easy feat, particularly during the recent economic climate and for a ridiculous comment like that made by Mr. Gittins who is supposed to support and encourage local business in his capacity as councillor is disappointing. It does not matter whether I agree or disagree with a new medical centre in Bewdley and I am not qualified to understand the implications to the business in the town, however Mr Gittins needs to think a bit more carefully before he makes stupid comments like this. I know this is unlikely but what if all the business in Bewdley decide to take him up on his suggestion and leave, that would really have negative consequences to the towns economy.

Unfortunately the one sided story provided by the Medical Centre when they hosted the public "consultation" failed to mention the survey that had taken place that stated over 70% of visitors to the centre do not then shop in the town. Those that did presumably would go to the pharmacy but that will be removed from the "high" street as the doctors are building their own. Parking is many times more important to the traders than a new medical centre.

It also hasn't been mentioned anywhere that the new services provided in the thrice big medical centre will be in direct competition with Kidderminster Hospital. This is the biggest threat to the hospital in years but nobody seems to have realised as yet.

Ok, it's 2014, what do the people of Bewdley deserve? Up to date medical facilities with an eye to the future or to carry on limping along? Unfortunately there will of course be disruption while the build goes ahead. Can you put a price on your health, your communities health? Your customers health? What Bewdley will have will be an improvement, but to get there, the whole town will have to pull through the treatment to get there. So let's pull together, yes it'll be difficult with reduced parking, but all of the ways into the town make for a pleasant stroll so if you can, walk in - think of the health benefits! Spend an afternoon in town, and spend your money locally, don't leave it all to the visitors, be blessed, by such a special place every single week - It's beautiful. If we all did this, Bewdley could have it's cake and it.

Cllr Paul Gittins says...

the original proposal to build a new medical centre was for it to be built in Wribbenhall next to All Saints church. Although this site would have had free parking, room for expansion in later years, no disruption to the town while being built and most importantly no loss of parking spaces in the town, the vast majority of Bewdley residents following a public meeting wanted the medical centre to remain in the town centre as there were fears that the shops would loose trade. English Heritage later objected to the new medical centre being built on its present site so another planning application was put forward to build the new medical centre in Dog Lane car park. This has been passed and as a result around 100 parking spaces will be lost while it is being built. The old medical centre will then be demolished and its site converted to a car park. During the building process there will undoubtedly be parking problems in the town which may affect the residents,visitors and traders. Following the planning meeting at Fine Point where the planning application was approved
I was confronted with some objectors and I regret that an argument broke out. One gentleman threatened that he would leave the town and his shop would probably become a charity shop, in frustration I told him to go ahead and leave. The next day I apologised to the gentleman's partner for upsetting her and promised to help in any way I can. I have already asked the District Council about rate reductions while the medical centre is being built and will try to ensure that the extra parking spaces identified during the build are put into place as soon as possible.

Well done for finally saying something, but I think it is too little too late. I also suspect that it is due to pressure by other councillors in Bewdley, because you've made them all look foolish.

The medical centre discussions have been going on for years and the town council does little to tie the many threads together, like parking, road safety, better defences in Beale's Corner and finding ways to keep the town running when the river is so high. How does the town propose to support traders and businesses in the coming months? Why does it find any forms of criticism as a personal attack? Time for a change in Bewdley, and Paul and Carol Gittins are the first that should go. Time for new blood, guys.

Nothing personal.

Cllr Gittins

I appreciate that you are trying to dig yourself out of a hole but please do not now lie to suggest that I threatened to leave the town and that my partners shop would become a charity shop. The suggestion to leave came solely from you and deeply upset Kim, and not just Kim. It was witnessed by others, and in fact it wasn't Kim who contacted Shuttle. You even stood by that comment the following day so it’s a bit late to change your tune. It doesn’t even make sense for Kim to be so upset if it was a comment I made. Kim has worked extremely hard to make her business into the success it is today, whilst also finding time to assist with other events in the town. For you to disrespect her in this manner was bad enough, but to now blame me, truly disappointing.

I did mention charity shops, but only to raise the point that the reason people love living and visiting Bewdley is because of the wonderful shops, pubs and restaurants. Without adequate parking these businesses are likely to struggle, and the town won’t have the same appeal if it is just charity shops and a new medical centre.

What has been one of the most disappointing things following this is the lack of understanding of the traders shown by the town council. With the majority of shops in the town being small they already qualify for excellent rate reductions so you are barking up the wrong tree in terms of trying to help. That said, I’m sure the larger business would appreciate it. We have both raised concerns with the proposed plan to yourself and your colleagues, things such as the removal of bus stops that now see busses stopping in the middle of the road, or the coach park being on “the Switchback” despite coaches not able to access it as they won’t fit down High Street, or the Dog Lane expansion site currently being under water, or the poor basic maths in the document that presents additional spaces when in fact anyone who can add up can see there will be a loss, or why do the doctors need to build a pharmacy when the town already has two, and so on. None of these concerns have been addressed and as the dust is settling on this story the silence is increasing from the council.

You said to us that you didn’t believe this site was suitable and only voted with the masses. It would do your reputation no harm if you were now seen to act on those thoughts and provide some real solutions to the impending problems rather than look to pass the blame.
