Sorensen's hopes out of the bidding

MORE LOTTERY funding should have been spent 'repairing the ravages of the 1960s' on Britain's city centres, the Millennium Commission chief executive Eric Sorensen said this week.

Sorensen was speaking after announcing his decision to resign from the position one year into his four year contract. He claimed that changes during the last 12 months - specifically the launch of the New Millennium Experience to oversee construction and operation of the Greenwich Dome - left him with too little to do.

The chief executive, who leaves in March with an expected £50,000 pay- off, said he was pleased with the way the selection of capital projects had gone 'so far'. He said there was a need to end car dominance in 1960s- developed towns and cities.
