it's a shit idea which does nothing for the area
Read the article above about Nigel Taylor. He worked there for 40 years and believes that the foundry could be made more efficient and competitive. As to foreign competition, the only competitors are in the Midlands, which is not that exotic.Is it not to late. Will the foundry want to reform of return, if not, who would want to take it on?
5 months old, but as the foundry closed in 2017 the situation is not likely to be very different now from what it was in February.The article is quite old and, I imagine a lot of things have moved on since then. Wish full thinking perhaps?
Yes, I think you're right sadly, it's a shame but there it is.As much as I didn't want to see it go, let's face it, It's a factory that's been mothballed for 2 years already. Is it viable to resurect it as a foundry. Also, from what I have seen, people are campaigning to stop it becoming a hotel as opposed to retain it as a foundry....
No, I'm sure they don't.I don't think it's within the planning department's powers to enforce it being reopened as a foundry is it? They can give planning permission for various types of use but those are categories, 'industrial/residential/etc'. They can't force anyone to run a specific business.
I'm a resident and just tried to sign that petition, and it said sorry, your identity could not be confirmed Does anyone know what that means?There's a petition which Tower Hamlets residents can sign which will oblige the council to debate rejecting the proposed change of use and keep the building as a working bell foundry
