are able to get in and out easily and quickly and for that I look at
public transport and car parking.

that there is a co-ordinated approach to selling the image and content
of the city centre locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
"The city centre is changing rapidly on a weekly, if not daily, basis as the rebuilding
programme takes shape. I firmly believe that we are going to have a
centre of which we will all be very proud and my job is to make sure

organisations, the Council, businesses, shoppers and visitors. There
is the opportunity to make a real difference and I am committed to making
sure that it happens."
