A letter in Nottingham Evening Post bemoans the state of Nottingham.
“WHAT has happened to Nottingham? It used to be the “Queen of the Midlands”? Now we see closed-up shops and nightclubs.
City pavements are filthy and some lovely old buildings are as well – such a shame. The old square is a big empty space unless an event is being held there.
Slab Square used to be attractive, with benches, flower tubs and hanging baskets, a pleasure to sit and relax there. Surely it could have been adapted without such a radical and expensive change?
The Corner House complex is a carbuncle, too many eateries competing, and Trinity Square is bleak and ugly. What are our planners and architects thinking?
Our two shopping centres are dated and dreary. Look at Derby Westfield: it’s bright, vibrant and inviting. We have a castle that isn’t a castle and Sherwood Forest.”
