Confrontation at the Hollway Road shops
It's time for a Town Brown application at Stockwood shops.
Here we are, accustomed since the year dot to park our cars, collect the kids, do the shopping, dodge the delivery vehicles and the potholes, and set fire to the waste bins behind the shops, and what happens? Some developer fellow from London comes along and wants to build all over it! Turns out that he actually owns it.
You really wouldn't credit it! Thank heavens our councillors are there defending the motorists and the juggernauts against the landowners.
Lets face it.... if the speculators get away with this, Tesco may decide there's not enough access to go ahead with their (rumoured) takeover of the Post Office. And the school-run mums will spread like a plague throughout the neighbourhood, as they fight for the nearest alternative parking that will keep them free of any obligation to walk the kids to school.
