Dreamon 2 Posted November 30, 2022 Report Share Posted November 30, 2022 I haven't been into Nottingham centre for years but this week I visited there and saw the ghastly Winter Wonderland. The construction work is impressive enough, especially the ice rink, but it lost all sense of a lovely open space which the Market Square is justifiably famous for. Surely the Square doesn't need to be chock-full of buildings and structures? There must be another place for all this stuff, if it's necessary at all. I've missed any debate which must surely have occurred in previous years, about this loss of primary amenity space. Presumably the city council feels it receives enough money for permitting such a claustrophobic monstrosity and this money outweighs the effective loss of a public market square. I gather this horrible mess is on until the end of December. Ugh! It certainly doesn't get my vote. I believe there are similar square-filling displays throughout the year, and I hope they don't take over the open space so completely. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
