Swindon town centre is a joke, literally. Often when people are asked their views on it they simply laugh out loud. And it’s no wonder is it? Currently, we have a town centre which is full of betting shops, dilapidated public buildings and many premises which are simply empty. How have we, as a town, got to this state? The Tories haven’t presided over a town centre regeneration so much as town centre degeneration! Nothing has been done to encourage cultural outlets, leisure facilities or a restaurant culture. Even Tory councillors say that the Tories are asleep at the wheel! With regards the future of the Swindon, the town is completely directionless and lacking in vision.
