I actually thought that the Co-op owned the building and they were either going to use it as storage.
 I then read in one of the papers that a clothes shop had bought it and was going open. Is this true '<img'>

I've been looking at the messages about the old Hanburys shop in Marple. I past it today and was very worried about the state of the rotten window frames above  the shop.The big glass window on the apex at the front has a big crack in it.

I hope both the frames, glass and windows will withstand the strong winds and bad weather we have been having because I would not like to be stood nearby if anything collapses.

Still I suppose the owners of the site will have plenty of public liability insurance, well they will have, wont they?

It is a great pity that a building like Hanburys is falling into such a state of disrepair.  People are always complaining of young people 'hanging aound' the streets.  The building would be an ideal place for a youth club for them to spend some time.  Perhaps the Co-op could donate it to the community and other companies based in Marple be persuaded to donate some funds for decoration.  Such a club would create empolyment for a youth worker.  In reality, i will probably be seeing bulldozers knocking it down  before something useful for the community is done with it!!

Things are happening but for various reasons they are still quite confidential at this stage. Congratulations should be given to the Marple Regeneration Partnership and Marple Business Forum who have both been applying pressure to the Coop who hold the lease and the landlords.
Don't hold your breath but keep your fingers crossed that there may soon be a positive outcome.

Further to my posting below I must stress that as far as I am aware any future use for the Hanbury's building will NOT include community use.

Who actually owns the building?

The building (and in fact the whole block) is owned by a private company.
The latest development is that following the Coop having boarded up and painted the windows, (which although not ideal is a big improvement) it is muted that the Owners are also to undertake a comprehensive programme of refurbishment of the whole block including the upper floors.

There doesn't appear to be an imminent solution to this eyesore but at least things are still moving in a forward direction!

Am not quite sure why they provided ready made blackboards on the boarded up windows!  Still, it does look a bit better than before, I just worry about the rotten window frames on the upper floor - hope they don't fall out on someone.

It will be a long time befor anyone has Hanburys because, the CO-OP own the lease and they wont let it to a food shop, Peacocks was blocked by other clothes shops in Marple and so was the furniture shop that was going to lease it.

It could have been let ages ago if these other shops had not blocked them, but it is in such a state now that the CO-OP will be lucky if anyone wants it.

The CO-OP should be made to get it sorted and made safe, If they keep refusing to lease it to others, then they should be fined until they do lease it.

While I am not doubting your word, I am curious as to your source. I find it astonishing that any other shop in Marple can tell the Co-op what it can do with its own property. Surely if the Co-op holds the lease they can do what they want to. DO you have any evidence for your assertion?

I used to work at the CO-OP And also Know someone who enquired about the lease to hanburys, the other shops did not force the CO-OP not to lease to certain shops they just made a request and the CO-OP made a choice.

But it is easy enough to find this out for yourself, just enquire to the letting agents, then ask if there is any type of use for the shop that will not be allowed, then you will find your answer.

Most people in Marple know about this.

At 32,000 per annum for the lease on Hanbury's there is no wonder that it can not be used for our community!

We asked about it this week and it is a shame it is so expensive. '<img'>
