5/. Lidl Windows - this is very frustrating on my part as i fought so hard to ensure that this site was opened. However, Lidl accepted a planning condition to replace like for like or refurbish the steel crittal windows that were part of the look and feel of the building. However, on upgrading the building the company ignored this condition and put in the pvc windows as you see now. The Council are upholding the condition and that is the hold up. Unfortunately we see this tactic time and again and while I agree that the windows at present do look much better the Council have a duty to ensure the company honours its obligations.
I hope this provides an update for you all and please remember that I am available via my email (my council email has recently had a keypad code added which makes it difficult for me to view during the day). I am also to be found walking up and down the high street most days to and from work and during the weekends. Please do not hesitate to stop me as I am always happy to answer questions on the street.
