Re: Debenhams now closing stores.

One thing that could happen. They are still looking at libraries and more homes on the high street. How long before the likes of Aldi look at Weybridge library site? Knock it down. Builds some housing too. Offer Library on 2nd or 3rd floor. Aldi store with huge amounting of parking too. There was ta...

Worth reading here. https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/roadworks-and-maintenance/horizon-highway-maintenance-investment-programme Currently to April 2019 there is little work planned in or around Walton. Most things have been completed already. If you view plans for after April 2019 it'...

Re: Elmbridge Roads

Divided by 48 counties? So maybe 7-8m for Surrey? Maybe 800k per borough? Pick and choose 1-2 roads to be resurfaced per borough. Would be nice to see Queens Road finally resurfaced. No real potholes but the surface is so uneven now. Driving past Elsemere Road, Old Avenue and across the bridge is qu...

Re: Debenhams now closing stores.

I guess the 2-3 year delay is good news. I suspect the Walton branch could be doing very well. Gourmet Burger Kitchen are closing 17 branches. 17/80 branches. So this could impact Walton. See what happens. It really could be a lot worse than it is right now. Many shops in Walton have been spared clo...

Debenhams now closing stores.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45972428 Debenhams to close 50 of it's 166 stores. (Almost 1 in 3 stores.) So far Carpetright, Homebase and H and M in Walton have survived nationwide store closures. Hopefully Debenhams can too. Walton is in a wealthy area. Walton's biggest issue has always been ...

Re: Our travelling cousins

Passed the new Starbucks on the A3 (San Domenico ) today and half the site seems to have caravans on it. Not in the actual Starbucks parking area but the construction area. Pretty sure they are trespassing. Wonder if that site was on the council's list of sites? Is that in Elmbridge?

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

I think they were just removing the balconies first. They need to order in the parts. They couldn't do this till we had planning. Work is definately going ahead and I think a contract has been signed. Exciting times really. A lot of hard work has gone into this. These flats could easily go for 350k ...

Re: Sevens Hills Road

Both planning applications for 6 house and 12 semi detached housing have been refused. Same reply for both. By reason of their excessive height and dispersal on the site, the propo sed dwellings would have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt than the existing development. As such, the...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

I don't believe they have removed any of the outer shell yet. They only just got planning permission for the parts. My understanding is they will gradually remove/replace the outer shell of the building working from top to bottom on a flat by flat basis. The windows are part of this shell so you can...

Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

Been checking this daily as predicted decision date was 02/10/2018. Contractor on site and lifts for outside of the building are pretty much in place....

Re: Hotel above M&S

Well we knew Traveldoge were looking for sites in Walton. I never thought they would put it on top of the Marks and Spencers store! Parking is going to be a huge issue as you can bet the proposed High Street development where Whsmiths and Boots are will generate more traffic and more people parking ...

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.
