BTW the Chatham Street/York Street scheme is recommended for refusal according to the Mercury; as they don't include affordable housing-which I agree. But neither do many of the other developments?

This development now looks likely to be approved, according to today's Mercury. Apparantly the developers gave eveidence to say that it wouldn't be worthwhile to include affordable housing, therefore the planning officers have done a 'u-turn' on the decision.

Proposed new 5-7 storey development on Oxford/Newarke Streets

From today's Mercury:

Quote:
SEVEN-STOREY FLATS PLANNED


10:30 - 07 September 2007

Developers have put forward plans to build flats, shops and offices in the city centre.

The company Monteagle Barlow Trust wants to build two blocks in Oxford Street and Newarke Street, in Leicester.

One would be six to seven storeys high, facing Oxford Street, and one would be five storeys high, facing Newarke Street.

The proposals include offices, leisure, retail, 56 flats, 37 car parking spaces and landscaping.

The flats include 45 one-bedroom and 11 two-bedroom apartments.

The scheme has been submitted to Leicester City Council's planning department for approval.
Leicester Mercury website, 7th Sept, 2007

Here's the council website planning application link (see adjoining supporting documents for building diagram):

i was on the city council website today and saw an application for a nightclub next to Mosh. I'll try and find the application and post it on here.

Behind the old NatWest building they've started to clear the site, the back of the building looks really good.

I'm keen to see this. The link below takes you to what seems to be an adequate file storage website.

http://www.mediafire.com/

I created a simple text file, which hopefully you can view following this link?

Should do the trick!

Thanks for that, but i've tried a similar programme on 123 drive, it says that you can link to the file, but when you link to it, it asks for you to login first???

Did my example above allow you to access the file, without a log in?
