Yeah things have been really close for a while now. Money and tribunal are no longer issues. Waiting for some official news before I get too excited.

Re: Pizza Hut

Underground parking. I do agree more flats locally will cause more parking issues.

Re: Pizza Hut

https://www.bighospitality.co.uk/Article/2018/05/30/Pizza-Hut-Delivery-debuts-first-dine-in-restaurant I wonder if they will do something like this for Walton. Would mean their existing takeaway store might close and move to this site. So basically takeaway and dining too. I think when they planned ...

Re: Aldi coming back

It does have parking but that parking is always full. So there would not be enough parking for Aldi customers. Unless they can somehow takeover the whole car park? Of course last thing we want is queues of cars on the main road trying to park in Aldi. Having passed the Aldi in Guildford on the weeke...

Re: Aldi coming back

Where did you hear that? Many things could happen right now. Aldi without parking seems madness. I could see Carpet Right moving into a smaller site or closing completely. They are still struggling. Albeit they have still not closed many of the stores they originally promised to close. Sometimes lea...

Re: Birdseye Building - SOLD FOR RESIDENTIAL

No harm in delaying this I guess. I personally think the building has had it's day and would need to be rebuilt. So will remain derelict for a while if the government decides to look into this matter. Nothing quick ever happens in government. What is worrying is the number of new builds that have li...

Re: Hedgehog; central Walton!

Prickly local issue. Used to have a hedgehog in my parents garden 30 or so years ago. Getting old!

So hard for any creature to find anywhere to hibernate in a town so regularly being knocked down and rebuilt to find more housing.

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

The original planning approval said they needed to get the colours of the cladding approved. I do think planning can be rather long winded. Planning should be there to stop developers just ripping up housing and building huge tower blocks. Woking has about 3-4 new tower blocks 15 or so storey high. ...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

Well they have just put planning in for confirmation of materials to be used. Decision date 02/10/2018. So they could easily be on site before that date.

2018/2089 - Wellington Close Walton-On-Thames Surrey

Seems to me this is very very close now.

Re: Bunnings

Homebase took on many stores from other DIY stores that closed down over the years. Such as Do it all. Apparently many of these have been running at a loss for many years. These stores would likely be first to be closed. So maybe Walton store is safer than some others. The fact that Bunnings upgrade...

Re: Bunnings

That's 1 in 4 stores. How safe can the Walton store really be? Soon find out. Someone inform Pet's Corner if it closes. Interestingly it's not listed as one of the 186 or so stores on their Homebase website. Maybe the closed ones are already gone from the site? However it is on the Bunnings site. ht...
