Hi Phil the first plans I saw to redevelop the site were Sainsburys and that has got to be 20 years ago , at that time there were neither Tescos or Sainsbury stores in the area but Tesco opened a store on Lyndon Road and Sainsburys took over the Safeway store in Acocks Green . I am not aware of any information about tennants for the retail units so its hard to draw any conclusions , local gossip had it that it was to be a Fort type centre with all the usual suspects. I am not a fan of these type of retail parks they just seem to be replicas of each other if you've been to one you've been to all of them . If there is a variety of shops that will be quite refreshing but I fear the Fort concept is tried and tested . To be honest Phil I would just like to see it tidy again Bakeman House will need another refurb at the pace they are progressing so far . I would have put money that SB knows more than I do about this project . Bernie
