Before anything is done to this area the people involved should first of all walk through and have a look at the poor state of the pedestrian area.
It is in a dreadful condition each time someone digs it up they remove the flagstones and block paving, they never put them back again, they fill with tarmacadam.
This whole pedestrian area wants a complete overhaul. The seats want painting also. Walking through it looks like a Third World town.
I say put the pedestrian area back to what it was in the first place.
After that they may think of improving the lower area. I also think that whoever digs it up should re-instate it to what it was, not put tarmacadam in place of it.
