Wellington has a lot of empty and unused retail and office buildings within the ring road and especially within the pedestrianised area. Direct investment by T&W is needed there is clearly a market failure to bring these properties back into use.
1st and 2nd floor offices should be converted to flats as a way of regenerating the town center, increasing footfall, reducing crime and future-proofing Wellington which has excellent train connectivity as well as a bus station (should be combined to make a transport hub).
