Swains Lane update

It is a real shame that after months of active cooperation between the Advisory Committee/Save Swains Lane, the Council and Lord Listowel’s team, which cooperation has produced some very major advances/fundamental improvements particularly as regards bulk and the preservation of the setting of the listed St Anne's, they decided to bring the process  to a premature end.  They didn't even publish the Application to us in advance.  The application seems pretty much where we had got to when the joint meetings were ended.  Sadly, it does mean that there will still need to be quite a lot of debate about the proposal itself.  We would have preferred to move more immediately into the effort to regenerate this fantastic shopping centre which has been blighted for so long.
