March 2010 Update From Asda

As per usual, every time we receive an interesting bit of mail from Asda regarding their Langley Mill store, we just happened to be away [on a crumbly mid-week break - to be blogged about when I’ve fully recovered!]

Anyway, the gist of the letter was confirming some rumours I may have mentioned before as now being facts.
  1. Asda is aiming to be open by Christmas.
  2. Heanor Haulage aren’t having their workshop and offices built - but should they change their minds in the future the planning permission still stands.
If they want to build anything else on that land, new plans will be submitted, until then it will be 'left in a clean and clear condition, and will be secured'. The letter went on to say that 'although the rumours had been in circulation for a while, we didn’t believe it would be fair to confirm the company’s position until we were absolutely clear on their intentions' – this I could probably have accepted with a little more grace if it hadn’t been for the fact that it was HH themselves circulating the rumours facts in the first place.

Now, I just happen to have read the council rules and regulations on times for the work to be done on our new Asda building site, and, ahem, they've already broken these rules on their very first week by working way after 1.00pm on Easter Saturday - unless RG Group, Asda and the council have stretched the rules [or advisory note] to suit of course.

14 Advisory Note in relation to condition 27a):

Operating hours are usually permitted only between 0800 and 1800 hours weekdays, and between 0800 and 1300 hours on Saturdays, and at no time on Sundays or Public Holidays.

This does not bode well, we already have more than enough disruption with the 'attractive' white and green trimmed hoarding being too close for comfort without 'out of hours' working. I warn you Asda and RG group, you can expect to receive complaints on this if it happens too often [not from me], and from the little light reading I've done in the last few minutes, I see that your workmen are already starting to annoy the natives ...
