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.

The hoardings surrounding the new development on the site of the old Bowfell House have been removed, and the new Bowfell House, a care home, is visible for your inspection. And not just outside: they're holding an Open Day this coming Saturday, 5th October, between 11 am and 2 pm. There's a little more information, but not much, on the Bowfell House website. It's run by the Knoll Care Partnership, who already run The Knoll in Urmston and The Fairways in Flixton.

York Lodge on Crofts Bank Road is to revert to a pair of homes. All extentions to be demolished and landscaped.

Update - Get Chucked is going to become El Camino Mexican restaurant, owned & run by the same people.  They had a "takeover" by El Camino a while ago and it's taking over full time the week after Get Chucked closes according to an article in the Manchester Evening News.

Aardvark - Yes, the Homewares shop (corner of Church Road and Broadoaks Road) is 194 Church Road according to Google.

It must be a fashion, after Lowery's Yard on Victoria Parade, now another Yard.

Is that no. 194? I noticed a notice - well, that's what they're for, I s'pose - in the Manchester Weekly News. Application to sell alcohol between 0800 and 2300, Monday to Saturday, and 10000-2200 on Sundays. Premises to be known as "Sarah's Yard".

There's also a notice for no. 145 Church Road, which is the existing "Craft & Coffee" shop, next door to Ann Blyth & Son, Funeral Directors. It's an application to sell alcohol between 1100 and 2100.

There's a planning notice stuck on the door of the Homewares shop on Church Road which seems to indicate it is becoming an artisan and continental food shop.

Concerning the Halifax bank closing in November, I think they have a cheek in placing a full page advert in Manchester Evening News yesterday (21/08/2019).

Looks like the cafe bar on Brook Road the old co op building has closed.

Astoria Bar and Restaurant is now open in what used to be the Chadwick.

Further along Flixton Road, the Joojeh Grill is closed and has been repossessed by bailiffs. If memory serves, this is the building that was previously the Flixton and before that, Isinglass. Perhaps it's cursed. It's next door to the Deccan, which has been going for donkeys' years.

Atlantean - don't forget, the Trafford Centre branch doesn't have a counter, just staff you can talk to and a few ATMs.


Herb - they've probably just redistributed the accounts to nearby branches. You can use any branch you like. For example, my Halifax savings account is held in central Manchester but I've never actually been into that branch, just Urmston (or Leeds, if I'm working there.) Also my RBS current account is held in Edinburgh now, but if I need to go into a branch I go into a Natwest, or the Post Office.

Yes I have had a letter from Halifax Bank about it closing but why do they suggest my account will be held at the Sale branch when Stretford is a lot closer?

The Halifax bank branch on Flixton Road is closing 6th November 2019. The nearest branches are in Stretford, Trafford Centre or Sale

Divad - it's definitely a pizza restaurant. There's been a sign in the window for it asking fir staff. It's called Leoncino according to the sign.

It may well be I heard it on the street and so it could hopefully become something different. With all the emplty shops and two banks closed on Crofts Bank Road they must leave room for a couple of wine bars.

Re: Developments in the local area
Reply posted by AnotherPete ... dated:27 July 2019

Divad - not quite. It's a pizza restaurant, as was stated on the planning application all along. They may be serving alcohol, but it isn't a bar. Unlike the place on Flixton Road next to Harry's Temperance Bar, which I think was supposed to be a bistro but has opened as a bar.

Yeah! a new bar is to open where the charity shop was on Station Road.

ASDA has plans in getting rid of the employees car park ( maybe for a drive thru?) & building a 76 place car park on land the other side of the store with access to Taylor Road. See 97977/FUL/19

Anyone notice, we have yet another Wine Bar in Urmston? This one has opened on Victoria Parade and calls itself Lowery's Yard.

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