Place is run down, I hardly go to the shopping centre, if I do it because I'm in a rush, the place is run down and now got people sleeping in doorways, needs to be given a serious face lift. Looks scummy.

This place is one of the main reasons people may come here or indeed surrounding towns. Problem is this place is so dated. This and the connected west gate centre has limited shops and those there are are small so limited for choice. The buildings...More
