It sounds like Market Halls would be exactly what Thackery would be looking to occupy the 'Bethany' building in the Howells redevelopment? Maybe the development of that section be accelerated to accommodate Market Halls or they could delay opening until the Bethany building was available?

Market Halls, a food court style operator, is looking at 20,000 sq ft site in Cardiff with a view to opening next year. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/london-food-hall-company-confirm-27742722 They aren't naming the site but there are several possibilities I think; * Grand Arcade - there are a lot of large empty units on the ground floor, former Hamley's and the former homewares shop which I've forgotten the name of. * Captol - basically all of it is available although I think it needs a massive remodelling. * High Street Arcade - this development seems to have ground to a ..read more

There's a notice for a alcohol licence on a door on the ground floor of the new Build to Rent Tower on Charles Street, its by White Hare Distillery, which seems to be based in Usk. The application includes live music and recorded music. Quite positive given the empty units that have been present on the Student Accommodation next door since it opened.

I would agree - I remain unconvinced by the Premier Inn on Custom House Street. Whilst I disagree completely with the decision to knock down the buildings to begin with, keeping the facades of the former Gwdihw etc. would've looked awful. Better that they start from afresh at least. Statistics: Posted by AWarmerBeer — Thu Sep 14, 2023 10:46 am ..read more

If not, the developers and council need to be held accountable. Disgraceful really. The above reads a bit like a WOL contribution. The council did not own the buildings! The owner of the buildings wanted to demolish the unlisted buildings and a council can only object to such plans on the basis of a proper legal detail, otherwise it'll cost them heavily at appeal. The deal that was agreed was to keep the f ..read more

The developers shouldn't be allowed to flout planning laws, but it happens everywhere. At the end of my street a number of trees had tree preservation orders, but the greedy developer cut them down on a Sunday, so that no one from the council could turn up to stop him. He ended up with a fine, and was ordered to replant the trees. I don't think he did, or pay the fine. In terms of the Guildford development though I think the average WOL reader describing it as an "historic area" is laughable. The crescent itself had zero architectural merit. It's a shame that the businesses had to go, but busi ..read more

I don't think it's OK, but I am trying to be realistic and keep some perspective. Ive lost count of the number of people demanding that the developer be forced to rebuild it, oblivious to the fact that is literally what they intend to do; the endless bloviating about 'cultural vandalism' and 'ripping the heart out the city'. Its ridiculous. For what it's worth, I think there probably should be consequences for ignoring the planning process in this way, although I don't agree with the average WoL commenter who seems to think it should be a hanging offence. I'd rather see the site get develope ..read more

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wale ... t-27665175 I'm really surprised that people think this is ok, and why they think major developers should just be able to ignore the planning process. Statistics: Posted by DaiB — Wed Sep 06, 2023 6:12 pm ..read more
