Rosemary Young’s one-woman campaign succeeded this summer where several years of fine words and assurances from our elected Councillors had failed. At last the paintbrushes came out and the Regal got a quick coat of whitewash.
So far so good. But then up went the “For Sale” signs on both the cinema and the abandoned filling station. Any chance of agreeing a joint redevelopment plan, or a deal, with the Council? It seems the Co-op wasn’t inclined to co-operate. One more missed opportunity to do some joined-up planning?
What do you suggest the Co-op, or a buyer of the sites, should do with the Regal and the filling station? Let us know what you think.
