Agree. This is an important location with regards to aesthetics.

Yes I agree with these suggestions,---especially buildings with Stone effect ----there are some great looking Sandstone/Limestone claddings around these days,-----would be great if new shop units were built with these Materials,----suppose we just have to wait until any designs are put forward,---fingers crossed,---cheers.

If this is high quality and attracts new shops I’m all for it but do worry about all the current empty shops.
Would the council not be better served in refurbishing the shops it owns on High street west, plus the ones it will own under the hotel (if it’s ever built) or even building this where Lucianos is now (also owned by council) rather than creating another new shopping area in a climate of high street shops closing down. Not forgetting the shops they also own on Fawcett street. Refurbing them and trying to attract decent shops/ restaurants to complement Flannels would also be good

According to planning documents, the bank site has been vacant since 2016.
