For years now the derilict site has become an eyesore and the focus of community protest meetings. It has fallen victim to vandals and the fire brigade has been called on several occasions to extinguish deliberately lit blazes inside the building.

One thought on “Plaza Plans

  1. This is what one would call quick fix housing For homeless people. Older people wouldn’t consider selling their comfortable homes to buy one one these cement boxes on leased land. Older people ‘s housing deserves a more interesting style/ plan. From its appearance on paper and what was said at the meeting I cannot see this going to far. What is needed is some long term planning in the centre of town and how the communities needs are to be met. Transport, medical, foot ways and other service providers eg Nursing home
    need to be improved if you are trying to increase accomodation for another 200 – 300 hundred older people..
