Re: You couldnt make it up

Be amazed if they knocked it down now! This will likely drag on for months more in the courts. How many people really want to see this site go now

Re: Tory Leadership contest

Have to wait and see how much crowd funding they do to take other politiicians to court. 200k will only go so far for this case. You can spend thousands on barristers alone. They did try a private prosecution for Blair over Iraq war? I think this failed due to fail due to Official Secrets act. Didn'...

Re: Tory Leadership contest

Latest polls show: Lib Dem 24% Brexit Party 22% Tories 19% Labour 19% This was in Friday's times. So maybe some Euro election excitement still going on? An Election right now would likely provide a Labour minority government. Albeit I think anything could happen. I think Gove could do well. He is a ...

Re: Oh dear ....

Including a private prosecution against Boris. Wonder if A) CPS will decide in public interest. B) They have enough evidence to prove A) it's not true and B) That it was Boris who came up with this? In terms of Labour. It's a sorry state of affair regarding A) Corbyn and his party on Anti Semitism. ...

Re: Argos are rubbish

I got a washing machine from them a few years ago. They were one of the reasons Comet went under. They were also delivering most of the kitchen electrical goods. They seem to have a very good delivery network.

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

I think main pushbacks is likely noise from the works. It's a building site so there was always going to be some noise. The builders are pretty eager and are often there on weekends. The transformation in terms of looks, double glazing and thermal heating of each flat is huge. I read a joke about mo...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

They seem to be steam rolling on with second block now. One side already has all the new windows on the outside. Spur block too. Hopefully done by the Summer. Not posted this link yet. A nice before and after shot of the works. This new cladding should really help protect the existing structure. htt...

Re: Old Birds Eye site -- work in progress?

Whole stack of planning applications recently got approved at end of April. Whilst they still have to talk to Network Rail this project looks set to go soon. Not sure what if any further planning applications they require here. It's suprising how some developments really help local firms. I do hope ...

Re: PA Housing

Planning still not approved for either Boots or old Burtons site. Whsmiths/ Boots site planning is nearly a year old. Last document added to this was in Feb 2019. Also some amended plans last October. So guessing some conversations being had in the background. As for Burtons site. 1099 - Sub-Committ...

Re: Elmbridge Local Elections

In some ways the Tories are right to want a hard Brexit. People voted to leave. Now 2-3 years on were debating what that meant. All this bartering with EU is only weakening the UK position. A hard Brexit at present seems a lot easier than getting 650mp to agree. Getting a motion passed by 1-2 votes ...

Re: Aldi coming back

Well sort of confirmed. Note they didn't suggest when it might happen. Carpetright lease runs to 17/10/2019. Aldi still need planning for signage. Will they really want to offer more for rent on the site to help Carpetright move out? Store is likely making them money or it would of closed. Is their ...

Re: Elmbridge Local Elections

Just to say that a couple of weeks ago, we had confirmation that the remainder of St George's Avenue will be fully resurfaced this financial year (the funding will be through the M3 LEP). Ditto Queens Road from the junction with Seven Hills Road through beyond Haines Bridge. And Tim Oliver has agre...
