From the people who live here to visitors to the town, all must wonder why nothing has been achieved in the way of meaningful progress.

The only noticeable change since the completion of the Potterdyke redevelopment is that the three Georgian townhouses, which formed the front of the hotel and are listed for protection, are decaying further.
