Brilliant news just in, the western end of Smithfield Market has been saved from demolition and redevelopment. Communities Secretary, Hazel Blears, put paid to the planning application from Thornfield to redevelop the site into blah offices and shops today, following a public inquiry. Hooray! So, now that this fascinating and beautiful, if neglected and decaying, historic bit of meat market is safe for now, how about some imaginative plans for it, to revive Smithfield, like what we proposed back when?
