SIR - I see such a waste of land in the plans for superstores and Hatfield town centre, with large single-story buildings being designed. In South Africa there are six and seven-storey shopping malls. In those malls are large play areas for children of all ages, jumping castles, mini golf, climbing apparatus, ten pin bowling, trampolines, arcade games just to mention a few.
The complex has plenty of free parking, a cinema, banks, doctors, dentists, chemists, toy stores, restaurants, two or three superstores, lawyers, insurance companies, employment agencies and pet shops just to mention a few.
There is everything in one shopping mall you do not have to drive anywhere else. So we can waste less petrol and have less cars on the road and cut down on pollution.
We did not even use the car to go shopping. My teenage children used to go and hang out at the mall and have fun with their friends, not going around to see what they could break or who they could hurt.
