Re: Looks like Bypass is getting closer

Agreed, but my concern is that it is rather like an election manifesto 'Elect me and I'll give you x' but there is no guarantee, especially if we see a change in Government. Also between 2017-22 Hertford will see another 565 homes built (1,850 by 2033) and the EHDC DP (Modifications 2018) is now sa...

re Drama Queen comment...

Sadly this is the problem; the F&B market is on it's knees at the moment; chains shutting not expanding, and Indies not able to afford the rent, this development is 3 years too late (otherwise it would have been a Cote, Wags, GBK etc).

Re: Bircherley Green

I was making a wider point about viability. Believe me if there was an opportunity to secure a good covenant on a long lease they would, rather than "keeping their options open"

Re: Bircherley Green

In the Mercury.. A Beefeater is proposed. Jesus wept. Over-priced, brown food. Yes I am being snobby. If it's in The Mercury it must be true :roll: Very good. Anyway, it's a wider issue. The scheme was conceived a while back when mid-market food and beverage was doing well, and operators were expan...

Re: Former Bob Hill Motorcycles, Cowbridge

There are no empty rates on listed properties, so this won't be costing the Landlord much beyond insurance. It's a nightmare for a developer as the listed status, and use make it unlettable. (I'm not the landlord :D )

Re: Restaurant/takeaway ideas

Thanks for your suggestions, don't you feel that food is kind of covered by Turkish Kitchen/Veysos? I appreciate they are not exactly the same, but to many people I would worry they will be seen that way. Certainly not the same as Lebanese, albeit I do take your point. +1 for Malaysian, or better s...

Re: Beane Road/North Road cycling proposals

Motor vehicles and cycles should not be sharing the same carriageway . Painting a line a few feet out from the kerb and painting the space green does absolutely nothing to improve safety for cyclists. We need either dedicated cycle lanes or shared use with pedestrians (and ensuring that the pavemen...
