For the duration of this work, over a few months, a website was set up so that those of us who wished to follow the progress had the opportunity to do so. It was excellent, and included a few photographs each week.

It would be a very good public relations exercise if our council did the same for the regeneration work.

Keeping people informed is essential to allay suspicion and prevent unnecessary rumours growing.
