While the renewal of planning permission drags on at the Planning Inspector (details here) the site has been squatted.

I believe the building may have just been squatted again.

A group of a dozen or so guys arrived a short while ago, some wearing masks, and carrying fridges and cookers into the property before taking in two large transit vans worth of suitcases (it was a huge pile of luggage!).

There's been evidence of squatters on site for a month or so now but their numbers have definitely just increased. Brazenly walking all of their belongings past two police vans.
