Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

I don't think that flat has paid the 66k fee yet judging by the estate agents notes. You also need to check the lease was extended to 99+ years. This was freely offered to all residents as part of the works. They needed to sign a form. I think that one is a spur block flat. Agreed after the works th...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

77% of block A done. 69% of spur block. The new balconies look amazing! Old roof nearly removed. Old windows also gradually being removed. From latest pictures it looks like some flats have been fully upgraded. Roof will actually have some insulation after this! I wonder if delivery of parts here is...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

Application to move Fort House GP Surgery from Hersham Road into vacant ward in Walton Hospital, Rodney Road. Over 600 objections, mainly related to parking, and nearly 300 letters of support.

'After 1.5hrs of questions and debate, the Sub-Committee voted to refuse the application, by 5 votes to 1.'

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

Some excellent new images on the D and B website of the outside of block A. The curtain wall is now 90% complete! Great to see the new rainscreen panels going up in last day or so. Overall block is 64% done. Spur block 45%. It looks really smart. Bet those flats will welcome that insulation and doub...

Re: 12-16 High Street

Others plannings have been refused because they offered no social housing. So this seems sensible if they want to get their plans approved. If you look on Queens Road in Weybridge. A large development has just been built by Haines bridge which also used a stepped approach so it wasn't obvious the bu...

Re: Aldi coming back

Plan shows parking for cars will be reduced from 100 bays to 94 bays. With motorcycle bays increased from 2 to 5 bays. Access for deliveries will be from the rear. So Colwell House residents could get some noise. They are changing the goods lift to serve ground and 1st floor. So they will likely sto...

Re: Pizza Hut

The last planning for M and S site was for a Travel Lodge. So there will be no flats there. Not sure what the delay for this is. It was only decided in last few months. In Terms of 1/2 bedroom flats I think there is good demand for these. There are a large number of planning on Hight Street for 1-2 ...

I am sure D and B Fascades could help. Otherwise you might need to find someone local.

Re: Aldi coming back

Further planning application has been added with details of what they plan to do with the store. Ground floor will be enlarged compared to Carpetright store as Aldi will get rid of the Warehouse area on ground floor to increase shop floor area. The first floor will now be a warehouse storage area. T...

Re: Pizza Hut

New planning for this old Dorothy Perkins site. 12-16 High Street Now planning 32 flats above the site! So from 2 floors to 5-6 floors. Looks like 8-10 parking bays round back. I assume they will demolish site and restart. Seems flats with no/little parking is the way forward. I wonder if they shoul...

Re: Aldi coming back

Well looks like Aldi want to return. Do they have to wait for the lease to expire? Oct 2019? Or will they simply takeover the existing lease. I wonder if further planning will be required for signage and changes to the building. This could still take several months. Good news for many residents if i...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

57% block A and 35% spur block now. Looks like they have started on the roof now. I think the first block could be done early/mid March now. The new roof will stop water seeping into the building which has been problems for some flats. One of spur block flats on sale for 219k. Which places flat valu...

Re: Vegan Market

Lot of my friends are now vegans. I personally could not give up meat. I think many people are now going Vegan. Of course you still need to ensure you have a balanced and healthy diet. Ensuring anything is truly vegan is another matter. £1.50 is nothing these days. There are many organic shops charg...

Re: Just been conned I think

Yes likely a scam. Get your mobile operator to block premium numbers. Check payment has actually been taken. You may be able to get a refund. Which mobile firm are you with? Be careful what sites you visit on mobile.
