Simple steps towards local prosperity

Here in Manchester, Manchester City Council has taken a very different approach.  This can be seen clearly in Hulme, with its redevelopment in the 1990s, an ASDA was one of the first retail units built.  The other smaller retail units and the very small market were built later, and as such have struggled to exist.  In fact, the market is now a B&Ms, with a few ex-stallholders still having a presence.  The council repeated their mistakes in Bradford, with the area being renamed New Eastlands and a large ASDA being built near to the stadium.  A large supermarket is to built in Ancoats, now referred to as New Islington, with very few local business still in existence.  The gentrification of Manchester has been a total failure but politicians still enthuse about Manchester’s success!
