What should happen to Docks site now Ecclesiastical has pulled out of move?
PEOPLE in Gloucester have said they do not want to see a new office block at the Docks after Ecclesiastical withdrew its plans to move there.
The temporary car park at the Southgate Moorings was set to be replaced by new offices for the insurance firm.
But it has since terminated its agreement with Gloucester City Council.
There are around 200 parking spaces on the site and some people in Gloucester would like to see it remain as a car park.

Nicky Moody, a 40-year-old tutor from Cheltenham, visits the Docks regularly to meet up with friends.
She said: "I definitely think leave it as a car park.
"I use this car park a lot when I come to the Docks.
"Today I met some friends and have been to the shops and I always park my car here."
Rachel Lane, 36, a cleaner from Lydney, said: "It would be wonderful to have something pretty here.
"Something like a garden, with lots of flowers and a tea room, which would over look the water.
"It should be a well-maintained area."
Shop assistant, Jan Meheran , 49, from Barnwood, would like to see more of a link between the Docks and Gloucester city centre.
She said: "If more shops are built on it, it will link it with Gloucester city centre.
"At the moment, there is a cut-off point where the steps and the building behind the car park is."
Gill Green, 63, from Tewkesbury, visits the docks with her husband once a week, to have a break from running their busy guest house.
She said: "It would be nice to see some ladies' clothes shops around here. When I come here, I really enjoy having a stroll along the Docks, especially in the summer time when the weather is nicer."
Mandy Oliver, 43, from Linden, who works at a sandwich bar, is eager to see big department stores.
She said: "Something like Debenhams or John Lewis, that is what we need around here."
Mr and Mrs Lucking, who live in Tewkesbury, often come to the Docks and they say the car park should remain as it is.
They said: "Even though we come on the bus to the docks, there still needs to be a car park for those that bring their cars."
