Re: Re: Nicholas Street
my understanding is there is no funding yet available, or none applied for yet.
I’m not too keen on the the Dutch billys being recreated. I guess I don’t have much confidence in the powers that be to carry it off successfully. Their attempts in Castle Lane were pretty poor. In any case, the notion of re-creating old streetscapes is not a very sound one.I really think we should be preserving what we have and make the most of it, but contemporary architecture is the way forward otherwise.
Also, there are far greater things to consider than architecure if the street is ever to thrive again. We must consider the residential and economic aspects as much as we should consider the aesthetic ones. All three do very much go together.
