We can see the problem, why can’t the people in positions of responsibility see the same problems? The solution is not to build more retail outlets when they can’t fill the ones that are currently empty. I barely go shopping these days, don’t have the time and it’s not something I’m particularly keen on anyway. The solution should have been to focus retail and eateries all around Princes Quay, Whitefriargate, all linked with the new footbridge over Castle Street to the Fruit Market. A lot of these projects have been in the pipeline for a long time, so why someone didn’t have that vision I find really quite baffling. I’m sure in 15 years time we’ll be having the same discussion about St Stephens facing the same issues as Princes Quay.
