“This shop­pingp­ping cen­tre has been pro­posed to go by the name ‘Fair­ways’ be­cause se that’s the name of the build­ing which ch was at that par­tic­u­lar lo­ca­tion be­fore the 1998 dis­tur­bances.

“So un­less there are ob­jec­tions to this name,me, that’s what the com­plex is go­ing oing to be called.”
