Walk back?

photoPlans to revamp King’s Walk and rename it Atlantis Village might be the most radical since it was built in the 1980s.

But a revamp and a new name has been tried before. What the current plans don’t point to is how they will fill the empty units.

The Oracle, it was long believed, would bring a new level of footfall yet still this place fails.

The Oracle had once considered buying it, but didn’t. The only way it would work would be to have attractions at either end.

Until that happens no amount of revamps, new signs and new names is likely to work.
