The parade of shops on Mather Avenue by the junction with Heath Road has been a bit of a local blight. The empty shop front there has helped to make it all look more run down than it needs to.
Well it seems there could be good news on the way. There's a plan to use that empty shop to join on to the cafe so that theres a cafe and a deli in the two units.
A planning application went in and it's been agreed today (9th) by Council officials.
This is great for those who have been pressing for some action on that parade (although litter and cleansing problems still remain)
