Perne Road Shops again

I met with the agent responsible for the Perne Rd Roundabout shops yesterday. They are now definitely aware of my concerns for the site, and the need for urgent action.

Subject to successful negotiation with the relevant parties, they are hoping to put in a planning application in 3-4 months time for a 'refurbishment with extension' project that will result in shops with flats above.

I am hopefully that the agents will be speaking to the planners and ideally local residents in advance of the planning application submission to check what they are proposing is likely to be acceptable, so there aren't any further delays to the project, but this will clearly depend on the details of the final application submitted. In any case I'll be monitoring progress to check there aren't any unnecessary delays...
