Meanwhile, back in the town centre…something stirs at the Regal

Rosemary Young’s one-woman campaign succeeded this summer where several years of fine words and assurances from our elected Councillors had failed.  At last the paintbrushes came out and the Regal got a quick coat of whitewash.

So far so good.  But then up went the “For Sale” signs on both the cinema and the abandoned filling station.  Any chance of agreeing a joint redevelopment plan, or a deal, with the Council?  It seems the Co-op wasn’t inclined to co-operate.  One more missed opportunity to do some joined-up planning?

What do you suggest the Co-op, or a buyer of the sites, should do with the Regal and the filling station?  Let us know what you think.
