It's not the UK's first enclosed shopping centre - Elephant & Castle and B'ham Bull Ring Centre, for instance, beat it by a decade. Its 1996 expansion plan, of multi-storey car parks on all four sides, and more shops further south, was rejected after appeal in 2002, because of the extra road congestion, and the effect of neighbouring high streets, like Hampstead and Finchley. The revised 2009 expansion plan is becalmed, due to the depression, unwillingness to increase consumer debt, and the usual suspects from last time.
