Community Meeting 13th October 6pm

We’ll be having a community meeting at 6pm on Monday 13 October 2014 most probably at the Salvation Army on Ashley Road.

This will be a chance to find out more about the redevelopment proposals for the site and to have your say on what you think should happen.

We’ll send a reminder to our mailing list nearer the time with more details of the meeting.

In case you’ve lost track of who’s who and what’s what, here are some quick links to the key information:

  1. But Knightstone were supposed to be on course to make a planning application this Autumn, but it doesn’t look as if they are going to. Why not? They’ve had almost a year to do do it. Not doing it would seem to leave the door open for the likes of Fifth Capital ?
