Just to let you all know...went to a very grown up seminar about the Regeneration last night (I say "grown up" because all the grand architects (the Wansey Street one, the Multiplex one and the new LCC building one) got up and gave us powerpoint talks with LOTS of long words about their plans with whizzy graphics and so on. BUT it must be said, there was a palpable air of excitement as everyone drew a deep breath and understood that it's actually happening. Stand by for ten years of bulldozing, but our area is going to be unrecognisable. For better or worse,I hasten to add. The fear of yuppification cannot be discounted. Can we keep the Balance
between the old and the new? Do we need to? Comments!!
