Former gallery space converted to retail

The owners of The Tea Factory have been given permission to change unit 2 (previously known as The Tea Leaf Art Gallery) in to a retail space or office for professional or financial statements.

When the building was completed Tea Leaf Arts were given a two year rent free period as part of the developer's Section 106 agreement, to develop a commercially sustainable business. Unfortunately the gallery couldn't find a viable model at that location, so it's quite right that this should be returned to commercial use.

With Tea Dance for Little People to the left and Green Tea Architects to the right, it remains to be seen what kind of tea-themed business could make a go of it there. Tea Money Transfers?

There's not enough Tea Tree Oil retailers in Brockley Cross. Whatever that is.

A small cafe for Manx motorcyclists perhaps, Isle of Man T.Teas.

Tea internet cafe, laptop repairs, legal services and hair pieces?

Shame that Teely Farts couldn't make it work. Worth keeping them for the name alone.

I know what's moving in there but not telling! So far you're all wrong though!

It's a Walkabout.

A Walkabout would be hilarious. Just what the area needs.

Walkabouts are great - good, decent pub food and drink sold at a fare price. What the area needs, if not what every special interest society wants :/

There is a Walkabout in Wolverhampton. You're a long way from Surfers Paradise there, in all senses.

Have you been to Surfers Paradise!? 'Paradise' it certainly is not. Bit like Wolverhampton...

Bus fare or air fare?

I've heard it is going to another clap-happy church. Called Tea Deum.

I thought it was going to be a drop-in centre for recovering alcoholics, called Tea Total.

I thought it was going to be a drop in centre for Lou and his disciples, The Tea Party.

I notice that the previous old Shop on The Hill space, has become a sort of office space.

Secondly I noticed a prominent "no more chains" sign ontop of that pub i think the New Cross inn sited where Lewisham Way & New Cross way meet.

It's going to be a new car polishing business, the Tea Cut.
