Example text

Changing names are symptoms of a changing urban world. Instead of the Isle of Dogs, we now hear ‘Canary Wharf ’ and ‘Docklands’. Old residential and workplace locations – Canning Town, Limehouse, and Poplar – have turned into names for Docklands Light Railway stations. ‘Woolwich Arsenal’, as it is still known to residents of Woolwich and to local bodies such as Greenwich Council, is always referred to by its developer as ‘Royal Arsenal Riverside’. What is now referred to as ‘Greenwich 26 Mediating Institutions Peninsula’ was known as ‘Greenwich Marshes’ until the Millennium Dome was planned in 1996 and ‘North Greenwich’ tube station opened in 1999 – fomenting a continuing battle over the name of the place, and occasional attempts to persuade Transport for London to rename the tube station ‘Greenwich Peninsula’.

It was still like that in 1998. In 1999 Bluewater opened five miles from Dartford. As its website says: ‘Bluewater has successfully combined retail and leisure to offer a day out destination. ’ Bluewater is a successful temple to consumerism. It even has texts carved into the stone. Sadly, this ‘destination’ has killed Dartford town centre; and the hospital, too, has gone out of town. There is little sense of place there now. At least it was once a place. There is a danger that the housing developments along the Thames Gateway won’t ever be places which they could stop being.

So here we have two very different processes: one is occurring within an organisation, and the other is a change in relationships between organisations. A complicating factor is that these processes will often be connected. A faith-based voluntary organisation that builds stronger links with secular public sector organisations, and that loosens its connections with the religious organisation that gave birth to it, will be experiencing two different processes: relationships will be changing, and those changing relationships will cause the character and structure of the faith-based organisation to become more like those of the public sector organisations to which it is now relating more strongly, and less like those of the religious organisation from which it is distancing itself (DiMaggio and Powell 1983: 156).
