Another shop front poised to disappear on Lewisham Way

A planning application has been filed for 128-130 Lewisham Way, a retail unit currently occupied by Alcomax Lettings, to be converted into two flats. The shop is at the top end of Lewisham Way, opposite Ned's Beds - see it on Google street view. Alcomax has a second office on the corner of Lewisham Way and Rokeby Road, which was still open last time we looked.

In contrast, just up the road we noticed some new retail or office units have been created as part of a new-build development at the top of Tanners Hill, on the corner with St. Nicholas Street.

Seems barmy that shops on a bustling thoroughfare are being converted to flats, while retail units are strapped to the bottom of new build apartments on a largely residential side-street.
