When are building works due to start on Phoenix ? At this rate we'll have another financial crash and 10 more years of no development......

Can't expect developers to build on challenging brownfield sites when so many lovely rural greenfield sites are being given planning permission.
The business units they were going to build first on Malling Brooks don't seem to be happening either.
They are not charities you know.

To be honest, I like the Phienix riverside as it is, all towns need a few rough edges and I can't stand modern pastiche chocolate box estates. Just seems a shame all those businesses lost their premises. Maybe they've seen how the new units under the premier inn are being snapped up (not) and having second thoughts....?

Sweep it all away as soon as you can. Bulldoze the lot. All of it, I don't care about stage 1, 2 or whatever. I love watching soap dodging workshy tax avoiders get done. Doesn't matter if they don't build anything now. Put a big Lidl, KFC, Subway & MacD's there. That's what ordinary people here want.

Well said Fairmeadow. Hopefully planning targets will be met by tarmacking over Ringmers's green fields...The Santon devt can wait for now - numbers of DFL's snapping up million pound shoe boxes seems to have abated, and who on earth else would you build homes for?

Fairmeadow - Little do you know, Malling Brooks work has started, but like many others in this Town you do not know where Malling Brooks is, or you do not care about the Residents that back on to the Brooks and the fight they had to stop it being developed, No march through the Town for the Tax paying residents Malling residents!!

I'm ordinary, I don't want a MacDonalds or KFC stinking up the town! I'm sure the small businesses down the phoenix would disagree about the comment on dodging tax too. Ltlr, maybe the malling residents should've organised a march like those proactive 'soap dodging' phoenix types!

I'm also an ordinary resident and think that, just as bonfire does, the current occupants of Phoenix give the twin an interesting character that I like. The last thing anyone who was not a troll would want would be for the town to be entirely swamped by tawdry chains and for all individuality to be lost.

Why does someone have to be a troll because they don't agree with your opinions?

Seems to be the default stance towards anyone who has a different opinion to the smarty pants who think they're always right. See also Brexit, Trump, etc

Megawhat?, the marchers weren't being 'pro-active'. They were being 'reactive' as they were reacting to development plans.
