Less 'B' in the CBD? : Comments

By Ross Elliott, published 10/3/2021

CBDs will probably have fewer people working in them than the previous 2016 Census, and this may last for some years. Should this be cause for alarm?

"Should this be call for alarm".

Surely we have enough alarm now, what with climate change, pandemics with an extra 'strain' thrown in periodically to keep us alarmed and under the thumb. Racism and white male supremacists. Poor downtrodden women. This little subject wouldn't even be of the slightest interest to people already artificially and unnecessarily alarmed by too many other non-events.

I donít go to the CBD here in the west anymore, havenít for years, it was and likely still is full of rude, inconsiderate people who appeared to rush around madly going nowhere in a hurry.

Anyway, ĎAlarmí is an inappropriate term used in this puff piece.

Cities evolve, always have and probably always will, where is the ĎAlarmí in that?

For years the CBD has been evolving into the CAD ("Central Activity District"). Increasingly the central area is the urban area's centre for high order functions such as major hospitals, senior government departments, entertainment facilities, major sports stadia, large universities and the high order location of major international retailers. Progressively, as a result of universal car use, the suburbs are not only where people live, but also where they shop, work and conduct routine business activities, such as hairdressers, dentists, doctors, legal and financial services.
