We’ve failed to mention the scaffolding that’s been outside Cancer Research UK in the High Street for a while. It looks as if the roof tiles are receiving attention.
We’ve also failed to mention that the scaffolding that’s was outside the former Harwood’s opticians at the top of the High Street has been removed.
In fact, the building has been modified substantially. You can see the new top floor in the photo above, and a new extension at the rear of the site has replaced a number of much smaller extensions.
There’s more! Our next photo shows the former Kitchen Kapers shop within minutes of the installation in front of it being dismantled.
And, finally, our pet hate – the former Stacks shop. We reckon that the official authorisation for the scaffolding on the pavement must have expired around a year ago. The only good news is that heavy steelwork was delivered at the back of the site a little while ago, and someone in a hi-vis jacket has been spotted working there recently. Just maybe we won’t have to put up with the obstruction and eyesore for very much longer.
(We ‘wonder’ whether the advertising banners that were on the scaffolding not long ago had been granted planning permission.)
We do have a bit more to say about scaffolding. There’s a substantial ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ installation being erected at present somewhere in the town. You may have seen it already, but we’ll be posting about it very soon. We’ve taken a photograph in anticipation….
