The derelict bus station – another design-award contender?

The latest news – hot off the press – is that after many years of inaction while the seagulls nested and the bus station slowly rotted, the developer who owns the abandoned building has just submitted a planning application.  The new building is listed as a supermarket with 12 flats above it, in a four storey building.  Others have described it as “a tower block with a corner store at ground level”.  The plans can be viewed at .

Is this the right sort of building for such a key location in the town centre?  Will it improve the view, attract tourists and visitors, and help to revive the town centre?  Please give NICE your comments below.
