    The whole area ought have been bulldozed. You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear.

    Yeah, Coventry is a bit of a rubbish tip in places. Maybe the council should have got the people who redesigned Birmingham city centre in to do the job.

    Dont know if it's part of the main redevelopment, but Gosford St. is having some work done on it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-28641360

    Yet more ideas; maybe somebody could, make their mind up, and just get on with it!

    I think it'll all depend on which particular member of the council has custody of the brain cell on the day they make a decision.

    This council has wasted millions over the years with ill thought through and mismatched schemes.

    Some idiot even agreed to smooth high gloss paving on an incline down to the lower precinct. Looked great, but was a slippery disaster in the wet, which it was very prone to. I bet it cost a small (and needless) fortune to rough up those very expensive high gloss paving slabs.

    Sadly, it's very easy to spend other people's money...

    Default Major Department Store for Covenrty?

    Personally, I can't see Harvey Nichols or Selfridges signing up to move to Cov: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...-deal-12218202

    Seriously, why on earth would any big chain store come here? - It's a pipe dream, unless seriously subsidised.

    Coventry isn't renowned for being a shopping destination; maybe the developer's hoping to change the situation? Or it could just a pipe dream, as you say, Rebbonk.

    I really don't have a good feeling about this.

    It'll be fine - well managed, and completed on time & within budget!

    Default Channel 4 to Move to Coventry?

    Remembering palaver the BBC's move to Manchester caused, I'm not sure this will happen; it might turn out to be good for the area if it does happen, though: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...annel-12815699
