If it did go which I hope it doesn't ,hope nd pray they put a Wilkos there...everything you need, if they haven't got it they get it next day delivered to store or your home for a tiny fee.plants,seeds,paint,gardening tools,everything in fact...
On-line retailing is offering us an opportunity to develop the Old Kent Road away from suburban shed retail into something more suited to a central London location.
Something more akin to mixed used; housing and a reasonable amount of employment at all skill levels please.
I have to disagree, I feel it would be a very different type of shop if it was suburban shed retailing, (though I have to say I love that term and will steal it) and we need places to buy things locally with B&Q the best place for DIY equipment. I also use the Halfords and Pets at Home regularly. You just can't get everything online.
If we get housing it will be too expensive for anyone to buy and we don't lack employment here, it's the training and skills that people lack to get the jobs. I would rather expand the retail park and put more shops in.
Hi graham ..bit worried do you know something we don't! And where can we buy seeds, rakes,lawn mowers ,more importantly where would we go to get the correct shade of wallpaper and paint...just because we live in central London we still have the need to get out in the open and plant things, and a rake on line does not let you know how heavy or unwieldy it feels. Who ever reads this..if there is houses built would you want to live next door to the constant odour of McDonalds, as tasty as it is to some people .
