As you are all probably aware, (from the large yellow signs!) ‘The Bike Shed’ has taken over the Ballantynes site on a short term contract while they extend their existing premises. Councillor Iona Gordon gave us this update:
“I have heard that the development’s agent are in discussions with a chain of upmarket coffee shops run by Brains Brewery for the Ballyntynes site.”
There are currently no concrete plans for the future of this site, as soon as they are available we will post them on the site. Iona Gordon wrote to all the major supermarkets and has had replies from most stating they are not interested in this site – which is great news. But until a new retailer takes over the lease we need to monitor what’s happening.
Many thanks to everyone who has attended the meetings, written letters and signed the petitions.
