The Guardian has a story today about how with a buyer still not found for Woolies in Leytonstone Town Centre the building will revert to Council ownership. Cllr Pye has called for something with "substance" on the site, but offers no example, although she talks of adding "value" and improving "the food offer". I think she's after a Marks and Spencer - long seen as an indicator of middle class aspiration.
Why does it have be a shop at all I wonder?
Be keen to hear what you think should fill the site.
