I knew it...7 years of inaction and delay by local councillors and the minute Foxtons open up the scaffolding gets taken down! This clearly was part of a deal struck to bring the oh-so-jumped up estate agents to tatty old BHS in the first place. But what is going to appear in place of these derelict buildings?
re: councillors - yes all talk but no action. This is purely as a result of pressure from Foxton's who would never have set up shop opposite what looks like a shanty town without a guarantee the view would be sorted out
just an assumption but the coincidence is remarkable...one week foxton's opens the next week the street gets cleaned up! i cannot believe they would have taken that site (keeping in mind their up-market brand image) without a promise of something being done about the urban landscape on their front door
