SU6351 : Empty for some time

Empty for some time
Empty for some time
See SU6351 : Paper over PaperSmiths. I am surprised that the local council have allowed so many outlets to remain vacant for so long. Surely it is better to have a business in place rather than hold out for more rent?
Town centres in 2008-20

I am sure there are many towns across the UK which are suffering from the economic policies being pursued. These images, I hope, will act as an historic record of how tough times were and how so many businesses came and went. And, sadly, who thrived.
More recent images could also reflect the impact of the post Brexit vote. When you pause to count the number of vacant sites it is really quite surprising.
