The Leith Place redevelopment continues its inexorable journey to completion and hopefully, sometime after Christmas, it will all be done.
What do locals think about the lack of shade and the predominance of tarmac and concrete? Is this an inviting frontage to our town? Will people be inclined to stop and park in the baking heat of summer without any respite from the sun's harsh rays? And, unlike the frontage it replaces, the new development appears to lack any shady spots with tables where visitors can enjoy an snack whilst taking a break from a long journey so will people just drive on to Taupo before taking a break?



Do you think the new Leith Place will inviting to visitors or was it a shame that we've lost the shady space that we once had in the front of town?

It's said that under-fives are at higher risk of choking because they have small air and food passages and are still learning how to chew food.

Andrew Caseley from Gen Less
