Yes they own the store-proposed to let it out to another retailer but will do my best to speak to them re other options-the letter from the council suggests if there is another site we have an argument against planning.  The Hanburys store also has 2 floors and is fairly large so is an option at least-nothing to say it will be a goer though but worth a shot.

I'd have thought unknown supermarket company woul argue that the shop was not suitable as no car park and proximity to coop. I know I'd not consider it as a good option ESP as a supermarket had already failed in that unit.

Apologies thought it would be obvious-the proposed sale of the site to a retailer as the preferred option.

Re. Hanbury's ( I take it that is the empty shop opposite the Italian place?) what is the significance of it and what is the co-op connection are they the landlord?

I don't think the argument that this will be a viable supermarket competitor to the co-op's monopoly stands up. I do however, think that should M&co be persuaded to move to that site, the cavated M&co with an upstairs would be a viable store.

I spoke to someone from the planning/development dept at the Co-op re the Hanburys site.  She is due to call me back towards the end of the week/early next week and has confirmed the Co-op are aware of the situation.  I'll keep you posted.

            Aware of what situation .

The Hanburys unit is actually two units combined into one.  Work will be starting in the near future to turn them back into two seperate units.

The lease on the smaller of the two seperate units runs out in a matter of months and will not be renewed by the Co-op.  At that point anyone, no matter what area of trade they are in, will be allowed to get hold of it.  The lease on the second larger unit does not run out for approx 36 months.  Again at that point the Co-op will not be renewing it.

Regarding the black boards on the front of the unit, the Marple Business Forum is currently liasing with the local schools to have some actractive murals painted on them to brighten them up. Hopefully this will help improve this area of Marple until a permenant retailer can be found.

I think the Marple District Centre Partnership and the Marple Business Forum should be praised for not only continuing to pressure the owners, letting agents and the Co-op to improve this unit, but also for being willing to do what little they can to improve the situation themselves.

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'>

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!
