"Good morning everybody........"
Feb 11, 2005
I had the 'pleasure' of travelling along here yesterday and, although maybe I was just feeling melancholy at it being the end of the weekend, I was struck by how thoroughly sad and depressing the section nearest town looks.

I've known people who have at various times worked at the Heath's building, Corby House, Premier House and the old benefits centre. It must have been an incredibly vibrant, busy and thriving commerical area, with the knock on effect of thousand's of people heading into town or cafe's or bookies or pubs and keeping a healthy flow to the local economy.

Now there are several HUGE office blocks completely vacant, derelict and vandalised. It must be a thoroughly depressing sight for anyone visiting the town for the first time.

Who owns these buildings, why have they been left vacant for so long and what is going to be done with them.......or what should be done with them??
