Hi just thought I would jog a few peoples memories.  CAMSFC were offered 9.5 million for the site from a company who were going to put a small supermarket and a housing development on the site.  I am unsure where the idea of only 1 million for housing has come from  :-\

I seem to recall some time ago that we were told that the entire site was valued at about £4 million if used just for housing. So I was guesstimating that if they sold off part of the car park and the green space they might get a million for it? 

Students do pretty well at Oxbridge and those buildings are not brand new.

Duke, you do provide good entertainment value   ;D.   The colleges of Oxford and Cambridge are some of the wealthiest organisations in the UK.  Trinity College Cambridge alone has a financial endowment of £700 million.  It owns the port of Felixstowe, Cambridge Science Park, and part of the O2 Arena.   Like many other Oxbridge colleges it occupies Grade 1 listed buldings of enormous historical and architectural importance.  And it has more than enough money to maintain them in the manner to which they have become accustomed over the centuries.

The idea that a small local sixth form college, occupying a converted pre-war secondary modern school  building, could be compared in any way with that is hilarious!  :D

Duke,

Oxford, Cambridge and Marple College, bless you! Not a comparison that immediately springs to mind - wouldn't you agree?

For those who like political intrigue Council Committee mini - reshuffle tonight. Place going on Planning Commitee. Town Hall Mole tells me Marple Mafia are chasing it.

Asda NO camp take note. SA & MC succumbing to pressure of election and pressure from MIA (MIA fantastic at raising public awareness but political savvy of heavyweight boxer) have contaminated beyond repair their vote via PREDETEMINATION SO  THEY'RE USELESS. CW same problem.

SI current AC chair so a bit messy. AB - maybe but might put his foot in his mouth, its a trait of his. If it's KD THEN I think that the NO'S can safely say that all local Councillors are in the NO camp - do you understand why Miss Marple and MIA? If you don't then its too difficult for me to explain.

One of the councillors is for a supermarket on Hibbert Lane to prevent a hotel being built on the site.The councillor does not want any competition to his/her business.

Mrs O

Could easily be true. No different than the local butcher or greengrocer not wanting Asda. You can't blame them and you couldn't blame the Councillor.

I have to say though you would think that being a Councillor, the Councillor would know that the chances of any developer coming forward to build a hotel on that site (UNLESS HE IS HAPPY TO LOSE ALL HIS MONEY VERY QUICKLY) are very remote.

I know I'm going on in years but can anyone please translate this into readable English so then I might be able to understand it!

Be my guest:

SA = Councillor Shan Alexander   
MC = Councillor Martin Candler 
MIA = Marple in Action  (a local anti-supermarket campaign)
CW = Councillor Craig Wright
SI = Councillor Susan Ingham
AB = Councillor Andrew Bispham 
KD = Councillor Kevin Dowling 

Loose translation: by declaring themselves in advance to be against the college's plans, our local councillors have effectively debarred themselves from being involved in considering the planning applications.  Whoops!

Thank  you Mrs O !  but I will have to be honest at first sight without my glasses I thought it was in  Lithuanian but then with my glasses on it still looked like a post from a Lithuanian overseas member of the forum.   But after texting nearly the whole of Marple I found someone to explain what it meant    So thank you Finetime but please remember I am a simple gal and need spoon feeding such complicated information. But welcome to the site your impute is enthralling   :-\
