Health Warning: The Ritblats are busy in the Borough
The redevelopment of the Odeon has surfaced again.
Minerva who own the site have now acquired the adjoining Post Office sorting office and Whitlock House which is a move we had anticipated when the planning application for the PO was withdrawn. It potentially makes sense and we understand that it has freed things up so that they will now be able to keep the plane trees in front of the Odeon. There will still be a cinema but not the Odeon.
The downside may be that they are talking about an increase in the amount of residential development.
They are holding two exhibitions prior to submitting the application one on Thursday 12th June 4pm-8pm and the other on Saturday 14th 10am -1pm .
Both will be held at St Barnabas Church 23 Addison Road W14 8LH. They are proposing to make a smaller presentation to some of the ESSA committee and we will of course be keeping a close eye on the actual application.
We do urge you to visit one of the exhibitions and do let us know what you think about the proposals good or bad. This is a tremendous opportunity and one we must not miss to enhance this part of the High Street.
