TO NEWPORT Council and the developers of the shopping centre in Newport.

Would it be possible to cover over the medieval friary remains with a transparent thick Perspex or similar material, so it would still be seen under the new complex or its position outlined on the new floor in some way? As I understand “the remains are not significant enough to be preserved” and are to be recovered.

Newportians are keen to keep their history as was shown by the Chartist Mural incident. So, please show some kindness to Newport’s past (as this idea would not delay the new development and be a talking point).
