Walking through the past

There was a time when I used to visit the canal around Abbey Park in Leicester on a regular basis.  I know this will be hard to believe but more than once I have run around this area.  Those were the day!   Today, much like me, the area has seen better times but at least some regeneration is taking place but there is a huge area of undeveloped land that is crying out for houses to be built on it.   The perfect brown field site next to the city centre so why hasn’t it been covered with new housing?   I have no answer to this but you do have to wonder when there is such a huge demand for housing such areas are left neglected.
