Is that the second time you've made a weird comment/joke about the use of a "V" (as in Bulgari/Bvlgari)??

Fears for the Fox - are they justified? 30 Oct 2019 23:05 #4852

PGC Webmaster PGC Webmaster's Avatar Topic Author


There have been fears expressed by some locals about the predicament of what's left of the Fox pub, with its upper storeys completely exposed to the elements at the back. Some even suggested that work on the new flats had stopped, but this is not actually the case, it's continuing, but currently isn't particularly visible from street level.

The developers, Dominvs, have said that they expect to "launch the development" in the spring, with the focus on the local market: "We do not believe in marketing developments of this nature overseas". Which sounds like good news, since new people actually living in the flats will provide an opportunity for our local shops (if they take the trouble to attract new customers, that is.)

The council is also reportedly keeping an eye on the development. An officer from the planning department was due to visit the site this week to look at samples of construction materials, and Councillor Dinah Barry has asked the Building Control Team to review any potential safety issues.

I spoke to one of the guys taking the scaffolding down last week. He said the developers were bringing in a new building company - hence the hiatus.

All sounds completely fine and normal then.
