One disappointing report is the redevelopment of the former WH Smith site on Clifton Down Road and bordered by Kings Road and Boyce’s Avenue.
This site changed hands and a new developer decided to submit a revised planning application which was rejected by the BCC Development Control committee (of which Charles Lucas was a member). It was felt the new design was too big and lacking the style which we would like to see in this location. We eagerly await the developers revised application.
Charles is maintaining regular contact with the developer and as a result of his requests, we are pleased to advise a new hoarding has been erected around the site to try and improve the appearance of this eyesore. It is with great regret we fear we will be looking at this for some time to come.
