Pride of Place

Reinforcing sense of place and creating pride of place.

A popular and lively City Centre needs a range of quality shopping, leisure and cultural facilities. But the distinctiveness of a place is at least as much a product of the buildings, streets and spaces that are a legacy of its unique history. Opportunities need to be grasped to reinforce this sense of place when shopping areas begin to resemble each other. And it all needs to be properly looked after by the City Council, by property owners, leaseholders and users.

Fortunately, some of the more unusual signs from the past are carefully preserved!
