I'm impressed with them refurbished blocks, I hope they manage to get all of them done up in the same way.
unfortunately it seems that a new proposed store could be even bigger than the previous proposal. an independent inspection of the benwell-scotswood action plan removed the upper limit for the size of a potential store. hno:I'd certainly consider the possibility of living in one of the refurbished blocks. The duplex flats look really nice and the views from the higher floors will be incredible.
As for Tesco on West Road... if I see another planning application for that which isn't a substantial improvement (and by that I mean a proper mixture of uses, a good design, a smaller supermarket - I know not likely - and retention of the old building on the corner with Brighton Grove), then I am going to lend all the support I can to the inevitable local campaign to stop it being built.
Yeah, I heard that as well. All the more reason to fight it even harder.unfortunately it seems that a new proposed store could be even bigger than the previous proposal. an independent inspection of the benwell-scotswood action plan removed the upper limit for the size of a potential store. hno:
As the old saying goes, you can't polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter!Riverside Dene looks nice, but I still would not live there. Even if you have the nicest flat in the world, you have to feel safe walking around where you live and I just wouldnt in that area. I had a distant relative who was put in that area by the council, someone tried to rape her (but only managed a sexual assault) the second day she was there, in the middle of the day just off a main road hno:
