I'm not too worried who owns it as long as we get a supermarket a.s.a.p. Makes you think though! I thought the Green's said they would NEVER negotiate with Netto. It's all very strange!!

You hear so many different stories regarding whose going to build our supermarket, so I am one of those that takes everything I hear with a pinch of salt and what will be will be! One of the stories I heard was that Netto had bought the gas house in order to thwart Lidl's plans, but like I said, If it's true...it's true...and if not....well...I think you get where I'm going  Grin. The other thing I heard was that all they are doing for now, is clearing the site, and only when it's cleared are they (Whoever "They" may be) going to put planning permission in! My, the Featherstone grapevine is unbelievably huge isn't it... Grin. I still say, to build the supermarket there is totally ridiculous when there is a perfect location a few hundred yards down the road on the old Crystal Drinks site!

Why does Featherstone need a supermarket?
apart from buying everything together in one place and paying by card what would Netto or Lidl offer us?
in the Lane i can buy, bread, milk, tinned goods, meat, all deli items, veg, fruit, alcohol, flowers, cards, stamps, cakes, pet food, clothes, Pizzas, curries, all diy etc all at excellent freshness and quality.
Would a supermarket harm the current businesses?
Would it be possible for the existing businesses to form a single point of contact and work together, therefore negating the need for a supermarket.
Afterall when we had kwiksave it was always empty when i went in.

Who is being a bully?
Contractors working on site for 2 weeks starting at 6am.
The scaffold on the public highway should have a licence attached that should be inspected by the local authority upon installation.  The scaffold constructed blocks the highway enough that it is closed and a closure order should have been applied for. What ever way erected a pedestrian tunnel should have been created.
Demolition towards the road left an unstable building that could have fallen on the road.
You will have seen 2 houses demolished on Pontefract road leaving 2 terrace houses. One has an exposed wall. This house belongs to an 80 year old lady. She cannot get out of her back door. She is covered in dust. She has 16 ft of rubble piled against her home.
The irony is no complaints other than the dear old lady and her district cllr. Why no complaints from Brendon power, Peter roper and Featherstone labour party? Last year they made up to 3 complaints a day for 9 months of people fitting plastic covers in the precinct.

As you know, I'm a believe it when I see it person and I have just let all the different rumours of what it's going to be and who's bought what go over my head, but now I do believe it's going to be a Lidl as the site manager invited my parents into his cabin and showed them the plans when they enquired as to what it's going to be! However, when I passed the site yesterday, I thought they were building us a new Lister baths! I passed at 8pm and I'd noticed that they had dug way down into the foundations, but unfortunately at the same time, they had buggered up the water pipes and water was gushing out! It had filled up quite considerably when I went passed! It wasn't a small area of water either! I hope they all had their arm bands on this morning when they went to work  Grin

Was always glad youíre a fact man Mr T.    Letís do some, unless the usual off putters can say different;
1.   Modex still owns the site up till Friday.
2.   Lidle have given £10k towards a monument to be placed on the corner of the junction.
3.   The water is a problem. A big problem never mind the contamination.
4.   A super market can be built and will start in August. The work you see now is ground works by contactor.
5.   A supermarket can be built but there is still no passed planning application for a safe entrance.
6.   A supermarket will open in February 2011. How they get in to it will be an interesting comparison to many happenings in the last few years around Featherstone.

And for those poor people suffering around the ground work today was a free gift. Surrounding residents received a Lidle hamper.
What about a cleaner?

Guess this is why Netto never materialised.

Firstly,  Im sick to the back teeth of hearing people find fault in everything..."its not the right location " "we dont want a Lidl" " look at the mess its causing"  ....we are getting a supermarket !!  ..isnt that what we've been fighting for ?? ..or have i missed something ? Does it matter which supermarket we get ? ..i dont think it matters to the less able who are having to struggle into town to buy neccessities ..im sure they are very pleased that their life will be made that bit easier. !!

Secondly, The only way things will improve in Featherstone is if people work together and stop bickering like adolecents , its ridiculous !!! Is they are not willing to put aside their personal differences then perhaps they should take a back seat and let the people who really care about Featherstone make it a better place because its such a bad example to set. Sometimes in life we have to do things and work alongside people we dont really like in order to achieve what we set out to do. Roll Eyes

Way to go Belle.  Like you, I find it ridiculous that those who claim to be working for the good of Featherstone spend much of their time arguing and maligning each other

Most supermarkets offer something for everyone. My thoughts are Lidle is one of the few supermarkets i wouldnt get all my weekly shopping from, but its a start. Grin

Lets work together?
So thats why there are a number of vehicle counting cameras now working to pass an all ready failed entrance application?
If you owned a house on Pontefract road that faced possible demolishion by highways after the building is finished wouldnt you wish for someone to fight your corner?
