This was what the derelict Hoover spares building adjacent to Bissingen Way used to look like before it was demolished last year – almost certainly after the borough council bought it.
Soon after it was removed, a rather dinky fence – which some unkind souls refer to as a playpen! – was erected around the site. But we’ve noticed more recently that a rash of red notices has broken out. They bear the borough council’s logo rather than that of the county council, which seems to confirm that the borough council now owns the site. It would be rather nice if the residents – who will have to foot the bill for acquiring the site, of course – were allowed to park on it. Or would that be too difficult??
