ANGER has been expressed at another proposal to open an amusement arcade in a conservation area in St Ives.

Carey Leisure, which already has arcades in St Neots and in Huntingdon, has applied for planning permission to adapt a former Lloyds Bank in Bridge Street.

The application has been submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council.

Councillor John Davies, chairman of the district council and councillor for the South Ward of St Ives told The Hunts Post that several residents and councillors had objections to the scheme.

He said: "This is not suitable for a conservation area. We were hoping to create a café culture in this area, which encourages people to stay in the town longer.
