Hey just my opinion. My thought process is that each business / development becomes more viable as demand for property increases due to reduced amount and as footfall is concentrated in a much small area providing a more vibrant area rather than spread across the city.Give over.....you grow by offering less?!!
The city centre dominates one side of the river.....it needs to expand to the north
My analogy would be that the atmosphere at the SOL would be better if it was returned to a 30/35,000 seater stadium now, with a view to it growing back to 40,000+ if we were ever to be successfull. At the moment the stadium is just too big for us and most of it redundant, much like the city centre.
I would add however that there is an argument to build a brand new city centre on the sheepfolds and Vaux site, and to just get rid of the rest however that is seems even more unlikely.
