Graham,

I am surprised to hear that, I read the Coes road decision only the other day, I’ll check it tomorrow and I must say that type of letting is exactly what will kill out City & Town Centres. Why should people travel to the City Centre and support retail diversity when the most profitable elements are picked off by industrial sheds with a single glazed facade?

I think that retail warehousing evolved as bulky goods retailers such as Frank got pushed out of town centres by rising rents, who in their right mind would argue that Elvery’s can’t compete at town centre level and if they can’t their is also Footlocker, Champion Sports and Lifestyle to replace them.
