Roman Road East: which way to town centre renewal?

One thought on “Roman Road East: which way to town centre renewal?

  • A modern market needs a speciality. Look at Columbia Road (Flowers), Brick lane (antiques/vintage) and Broadway Market (Food)

    Its always going to be more expensive than the supermarket for the traditional market items, so lean into the experiential nature of it. That way the traders – on the lower economic scale – can attract punters at the higher.

    There’s no need for a social divide between the sides of the road; rather it is a consequence of poor market management, creating a market which is undesirable. The desirable traders have instead set up shops/boutiques on the west side.
