    I would prefer the MRA/PDC to adopt option 1:-
    To continue to oppose the planning application for a Lidl store by any means available to us including applying for a new ACV.

    I found your online survey to be impossible but I vote that you oppose Lidl by all means possible. As a suggestion can we get Wetherspoons interested?

  3. The site needs to be a refurbished pub/restaurant with a good menu.
    It is the only way a facility of that kind will be sustainable.
    If it has to be a supermarket then using the existing building as the front would be less of a loss. The Co-op have achieved this with the old White Horse on White Horse Hill.

  4. I vote that you continue to oppose the planning application by any means possible

  5. The Porcupine site should be developed as a site for the community, or a residential home for the elderly or a much needed decent coffee/tea shop. I am sure that a lot of young mums with children in local schools, would welcome this.
    If the Porcupine becomes another supermarket we will have the problems of congestions due to delivery vans, parking and coming/goings so near the roundabout. That area always gets congested around school drop off/pick up times and dustbins days.

  6. I believe that the MRA should work together with Lidl and Bromley Council to deliver a Lidl supermarket on site.

    Do we have to nominate it again for it to retain its ACV status? If yes, who would organise it and how will the residents be notified?
    It could be something mom/kids/family/community centre oriented with rental rooms for functions to finance it, as there is nothing like that in the area. If that doesn’t work maybe we could get Youngs or any other good pub chain to get interested. Not a supermarket as, traffic is horrendous in the area already! As for a residents’ home, I think it not ideal, it is an old property and one would have to put a lot of money to convert it to a care home. We must definitely oppose any new planning application by Lidl. The application is expected by early summer, 2018 so, any news?

    • ACV Nomination would need to be initiated by an interested party (such as the MRA). In spite of the frenzied activity of the Porcupine Development Group following the previous successful ACV application, we were unable to find anyone, similar to your suggestions, willing to finance the project. In addition, Lidl’s asking price for the site is beyond the reach of any interested parties. In light of the fact that we have been unable to generate sufficient interest or funding during the period of the ACV, the MRA regard it as inappropriate for us to reapply.
