Transformed for better

Transformation

Over the years, I have spent many a time in our local shopping centre as you do.  Today someone asked me how long I had lived in this area?  When I gave them the number of years, of course enquiries about the transformation that I had witnessed followed.

Taking the main shopping centre alone, only a handful of shops are in the same place.  Even if it’s in the original site it is in name only because the building has either been renovated, repaired or rebuilt.

Changes due to decisions by councils, local or national governments, by public or business demand to improve the area and benefit its citizens are the main reasons for these.

One good thing is the local council involves the public in the changes, there are always public consultations.  Our areas are usually transformed for better.
