I have been asked by a number of Thringstone residents when building work is likely to commence at the Rose and Crown to convert it into a Co-operative Store as planning permission was granted last February.
As a result I have been in contact with the agents for the Co-operative to ask for an update which I can share with all of you.
The agent has advised me that although planning permission was given in February the Section 106 agreement associated with the application has only just been completed.
For those that do not know a Section 106 agreement is predominantly about how much contribution a developer must make to necessary infrastructure improvements associated with their application.
However now all the T's have been crossed and I's dotted the Co-operative are eager to get started.
I have been informed that providing all goes to plan construction work at the site will start in September with the outer shell being completed by January 2013 and fit out completed by March 2013.
Obviously I will keep you updated if I become aware of any changes to this schedule.
