Connecting Leicester

Fantastic to read about Connecting Leicester, which appears to be a joined-up, heritage-led approach to regenerating much of Leicester City Centre.

I do hope this marks the end of the piecemeal or blank slate approaches to development which viewed each plot of land in isolation and viewed any development as good development.

I do worry about how much of this will actually happen - we've had more than our fair share of grand schemes that have come to nothing - but it's got a lot going for it.

Do go and visit the website or one of the roadshows some of which are in some fantastic buildings such as Wyggeston's House on Applegate (which I'm embarrassed to say I had not set foot in until yesterday):-
