Developments in the local area
Topic posted by JohnM ... dated:17 November 2005
Those of you who read and contribute here regulary will know that I keep a close eye on future
major developments in the area, particulary related to Peel Holdings.

As promised a week or so back in this thread I hope to describe the main developments so others
can obtain an overview of what is on the cards nad to bring together all comments under one thread - some of these developments have been agreed, others
are still on the drawing board. Please feel free to correct or add any comments as you see fit.

Not Urmston but Partington, however, if approved, £56k is to be spent on 'improvements' to the Manchester Road/Flixton Road junction.

"Where is Amey in keeping Urmston tidy? Urmston Partnership, Urmston in Bloom, Wombles, Friends of the Parks, this is getting that we will have to empty our own bins and fill pot holes soon

A candidate in the forthcoming local elections is proposing to 'Offer more grants for resident's (sic) groups who take on litter picking.' ' Your vote means we can help support the fantastic work our residents do to clean up our streets by getting them new bags, yellow vests and reach-grabbers along with a website to help them get more members.' (Quoted from an election leaflet sent to a member of my household).

From outsourcing to D.I.Y?

Hmmm, the architecture is, how shall I put it, reassuringly average. If only someone would be daring and put a carved stone swirl on a corner for no reason whatsoever. Name - Simpson Close or Goblin Grove?

Friends of stations are not new. The Friends of Eccles Station, FRECCLES, has been going since 2005. In facy, Urmston is probably late to the party. FRECCLES has helped transform Eccles Station and have helped secure many improvements to the station and rail services. Take a look at their website to learn more.

Its advertising comes across as of benefit to the Steam House and it surrounds. Where is Amey in keeping Urmston tidy? Urmston Partnership, Urmston in Bloom, Wombles, Friends of the Parks, this is getting that we will have to empty our own bins and fill pot holes soon.

The old Surgery restaurant is opening as a new restaurant. There are posters up in the window but I can't remember the name. A market holder said it'll be run by the owner of San Giovanni. How true that is us anybodysa guess

Believe Nags Head is being refurbished and cannot see San G's moving.. Rumour though an old owner may be looking elsewhere and the old surgery is empty..

Heard last night that the Nags Head Hotel has closed. Along with the "story" San Giovania is looking for a home it looks like that corner is in for some change.

The notice was in the window weeks ago. I suspect they may sell food to eat in as well, hence the deli/cafe wording.

In other news, the former Urban Flame shop on Flixton Road / Ambleside Road looks set to become a Domino's Pizza. Also, there's an application for the former Greyhound restaurant to become apartments.

Yes Anotherpete I was told that today hence the reason for a Deli application. Cafe though?

Re: Developments in the local area
Reply posted by AnotherPete ... dated:05 February 2019

Divad - there was an application notice in the window saying it was going to be a cheese shop. Think it was called the Cheese Court or something like that  

Re: Developments in the local area

Odd application for a change of planning. 18 Crofts Bank Road, the closed solicitors office, to become a Deli/Cafe. Odd to me as it is next door to a cafe.

Once again while walking my dog we went through the Curzan car park to observe a BMW with no wheels on axel stands with other body parts stuffed in side the car as I said last year when a caravan was dumped in the said car park is Urmston becoming the dumping ground for large objects so let’s see how long it will be there

Can't see how the Crampton Lane one will get planning, the Lodge at the side got refused planning a while ago just for trying to put a single house on the land to the left of it.

Really? How do you veto an auction? Western says it's put on hold because the leasee hasn't notified the council...a mere formality, surely.

Re: Developments in the local area
Reply posted by AnotherPete ... dated:11 January 2019

JohnH - nope. Vetoed by the council according to posts on Facebook by Andrew Western and Jonathan Coupe.
