Several people have reported seeing ‘something’ happening in the former BHS premises in Ashwood House. It was all quiet there the other day, but the lights were on in the old Nokia offices also on the ground floor of the building. This enables us to show a – less than exciting – photo of the foyer!
At much the same time, a couple of surveyors were taking measurements outside the building. We asked one of them why they were surveying there – though we pretty much knew what the answer would be. We were right – they didn’t know the reason for their survey. Indeed, we were told that, quite possibly, some of the measurements that they were making wouldn’t be used. It seems a somewhat odd way of doing things?
(Of course, we know that the borough council plans to convert the upper floors of Ashwood House into around ninety flats. Maybe the survey was connected with this in some way.)
