This would create a ‘critical mass’ of office workers using local businesses that we know are not going to dissapear with any changes in the economy. The new council building could also be used as an opportunity to improve ‘eyesores’ in the town by either:
– Building an extension to the Town Hall on the site of the temporary carpark
– Demolish the multi-storey Walkden street car park and build a civic ‘quad’ around the Old Meeting House buildings
– Convert Beales Department Store building
