Resident Cabe sends in this photo of the hoardings finally moving back at this comedy building site on the Caledonian Road (my words not Cabe’s), former site of TG Lynes pipe fitting suppliers and plumbers. The site has been ‘under development’ for years with huge hoardings jutting out into the pavement. As its in a conservation area I presume that the planners will enforce a return for the charming period shop fronts of this facade that adorned Lyons and were preserved by the longevity of their tenancy.
These buildings have a complicated planning history – including attempts I think to turn them into an NHS drop in centre and a restaurant. We wrote about them in 2007 and the latest is P102751 from two years ago. Do any readers know what’s happening?
