Is this good enough for our town?

This is the uninspiring Copnall Way face of the new Piries Place development. The Society pressed unsuccessfully for improvements to the design but HDC councillors, in their wisdom, thought this was good enough for our town.

Given the criticism of Blackhorse Way - another of the main entry and exit points to the town centre -  and the Council’s failure to grasp the opportunity provided by the development of The Forum and car park in the early nineteen nineties to improve it -  one might have hoped that a similar mistake would not be made again. The back of the old Waitrose store which this replaces was not pretty but this is surely much worse.
