I work at Birmingham Business park, and we just had a internal mail telling us that HS2 will be clearing the vegetation around our building, going to be a interesting few weeks I guess.

There have already cleared a lot of trees from the roundabout and a little down Chester Road.

I only logged on five minutes ago and somebody has already banned this guy.

Edit: Think he might be American. He's been 'having a go' at other British forums as well.

Well my funny post back to him was just to make the point that we are not going to put up with that hatred and just to laugh in his face, hence why the photo of a yellow rabbit or whatever it is is waving goodbye to this scum of the earth.

Just to let folks know if they feel a little disorientated after logging on today, Jan has created a new sub-forum at my request after some discussion on this forum. This sub-forum is called Spaghetti Junction and was one of the suggestions from Fruit and Nut that I decided to go with. This sub-forum will be for personal posts or requests and for the sillier, more jovial threads.

The Lunar Society will be reserved for the more serious discussions/topics and photo threads as well as major threads that aren't development threads like the 'Retail in Greater Birmingham' thread.

The Development Forum will be purely for developments and regeneration initiative threads.

There is obviously going to be some overlap on certain threads where it's hard to say for sure where a thread should go but let's see how it goes. It will take a little bit of getting used to and there may be some slight alterations as we use the forum but I think it will be worth it in the end.

I'm going to ask Jan to make The Lunar Society sub-forum viewable to non-members so I don't know whether he will have done that by the time you've logged on.

Any questions, let me know.

Ralph.

Sorry Ralph I think this is a terrible idea, this is way too confusing should have just been left the way it was, we worked with it for years.. moving Entertainment and Retails threads from the main forum is just stupid.

Do we realise people that aren't signed up to SSC can't view the Lunar Society forum? to me that's a massive following that's going to not be able to view the forum.

I don't want to seem dramatic but I'm going to take a break from the forum for a bit just until everything is settled, I personally can't take no more changes.

See you soon Lads.

Okay. I understand it's a big change.


Firstly, you say you've worked with it for years. The forum has been left for too long and if I can use the analogy of the canals in Birmingham here the city centre canals are looked after but the rest of the canal network is rundown, that's what's happened to the forum. The first couple of pages in each forum were fine but then they just descended into a mess.


THE LUNAR SOCIETY will be viewable to non-members and members.

I can, if people feel it is better, move the big threads like 'Retail in Greater Birmingham' and others back to the Development Forum.

However, this has been discussed before and people were asked for their opinions. I've sensed you've been unhappy on the site for a little while Reiss and maybe a break will do you good or maybe you'll find the new forum easier to use if you stay and use it. It's your decision but thanks for your input.

Apologies if this is the wrong thread but an item in Property Week says the six-acre National Express Bus Garage site in Liverpool Street, Digbeth has been sold to a 'residential developer' Hubs, a South East property developer.
Creative work space, residential, leisure and retail space.
Can someone possibly get a link? Thanks.

Okay, a quick update.


The LUNAR SOCIETY is now viewable to members and non-members.

Spaghetti Junction is viewable only to members.


After some consideration of Reiss's comment, I've decided to move the big threads like 'Midland Automotive' and 'Retail in Greater Birmingham' back to the Development Forum.

Outline planning has gone in from Seven Capital for the former Tesco site in Stirchley. Five retail units (smallish supermarket, gym, drive-thru and two additional small shops) and 82 houses.

Pretty boring/disappointing, to be honest - I think they could have come up with something a bit more ambitious here. But at least it's not a massive Tesco!

The apps are 2018/10370/PA and 2018/10368/PA

How long have we had a Coventry construction forum? This seems excessive and wont help it recieve more attention. I'm not really in favour of creating lots of sub forums as it just hides threads from the majority of users who aren't in tb4 habit of using them.

Tesco wasn’t perfect but this is terrible.
