I enquired about a retail outlet to Alder King two weeks ago. I was told that the outlets will be bought by an investor. I quote:
We have agreed terms to sell the entire block to an investor and the sale is in solicitors hands. This is off the back of a pre-let of the convenience store (Coop) and the adjoining smaller retail (Badham).
The other units will be made available as required.
Tonight we have heard that Badham cannot locate to Upper Rissington because the NHS objects, meaning that the whole development may not go ahead.
In an effort to turn this on it’s head. It was suggested that we write to our MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown. and ask him to investigate why Badhams (chemist) has been prevented from taking a retail unit by the NHS.
It has also been revealed if the building is constructed it won’t happen until the last house is completed (probably in 24 months).
