Re: Wellington Close aka Walton Flats

i will never understand the appeal of buying a 2 bed flat when you can get a 3 bed house for 10-20k more (or a 2 bed house for less). https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/find.html?locationIdentifier=OUTCODE%5E1287&minBedrooms=2&maxPrice=400000&minPrice=300000&propertyTypes=detached%2Csemi-...

Re: Lidl Opens 28th Feb

Actually, that's to deter thieves apparently. They had too much alcohol heading out of the store via the self-service tills (people pretending to pay) so they close those off first and last thing as the set of 4 is easier to monitor and further from the door.

Re: 12-16 High Street

Well they can if they want. There is a monthly subscription. You book a car online for the period of time that you want it, then pick it up from it's location. You have to return it to the same location. Your mobile unlocks the car. You pay for the mileage. If you use up the petrol it has a fuel car...

Re: 12-16 High Street

Yes. There is a proposal to supply residents with Car Club membership. Two cars are to be hosted in the former taxi rank on New Zealand Avenue, and two at Walton Station. One parking space is to be an EV space. Transport also considers the development to be close to the station and it will have prov...

Re: Fort House Surgery - relocation to Walton Community Hospital

It's interesting to look at the data. Most of the objections seem to be from an orchestrated boiler plate campaign, and numbers have been increased by submitting a letter for each member of a household. Most of the support letters are from existing patients of Fort House Surgery who cannot get membe...

Re: 12-16 High Street

they have cleverly gone for a design that takes it up to the height of the flats at the heart, but in a stepped way that reduces the initial impact. The artists impressions show minimal impact. The main people affected will be those with flats in the heart that will be looking at the new flats rathe...

Re: Aldi coming back

What I can't tell is how they intend to stop other shoppers using that car park? Why would they want to? It's a public car park. Whether M&S survives is down to M&S I think. Given that they keep getting rid of my favorite things, i don't think they need any help from competitors to put themselves o...

Re: Pizza Hut

500k is a lot of money for a 3 bed home. Particularly when you can buy one in Walton for £350 to 375k !

Agree with Waltonwatcher.

Contact your provider and they will likely invetsigate it for you and make sure you aren't charged.

Re: Time to close this site?

It seems to go up and down depending on whether people have anything to moan about / share. Bridge building with Hersham Hub would certainly help, but i doubt it would happen. I'm not sure new sections would make much of a difference. The General section is for anything non-walton, and it's fairly c...

Re: Exit Brexit

But, it could, and most certainly would, be argued that such a move would be acting against the referendum, and thus undemocratic. Only if the argument was poorly constructed. We have this absolutely unrealistic approach in politics that learning or changing your mind is an impossible thing and som...

Re: Exit Brexit

I would appreciate it If we could try to take a deep breath and be constructive though. For example John, what aspect of the Cabinet has been proven corrupt in your view? i know there are links being investigated between donors to Leave.eu and the Conservative party, that Hunt has a number of dodgy ...

Re: Exit Brexit

Can we argue nicely please? This is a contentious topic, but let's please try to fight using coherent arguments and without getting personal - otherwise we are in the realms of the Monty Python argument sketch. For my part, I don't think a second referendum is undemocratic - a referendum is literall...
