LETTER- Settle this Ripley Hippodrome issue quickly

editorial image

As a resident of Slack Lane, I have been concerned for some time about the crumbling edifice that is the old Hippodrome site. 
Parts of the brickwork fronting the high street and Slack Lane at the rear look distinctly unsafe to me. 
My feeling on hearing it might be demolished was overwhelming relief. 
Now the council want to try and save it, all well and good but this should be settled quickly one way or the other and not allowed to drag on for years.
