The advert actually mentioned TUPE for the staff as part of the contract (if the new business is similar) - but I guess there are ways around that.

I asked Bill's and this was their response "Thank you for your enquiry. I'm afraid this is just a rumour as we currently have no plans to open in East Dulwich, although we'll certainly keep it in mind for future reference!"

I for one am shocked. I was convinced the OP was genuine!

A quick search would reveal this is standard from Lou. I'm amazed everyone was reeled in again. Well done Lou.... Scoring you a firm 9 for varying off the old "low market brand crashes gentrified idyll / I was just checking the planning apps format".

Would have been 10 if ed-Pete hadn't busted ya. Next time....

it still says "under offer" - so maybe another Bill

I can only go by information supplied to me via the local paper shop. I am a regular since Londis on LL closed. The chap told me Billís had been looking into opening locally for a while. I can only assume theyíre either staying quiet until they can verify theyíll be taking a lease on for certain, or until theyíve put forward planning permission for signage and reconfiguration of the layout etc watch this space I would say.

Indeed. It's probably top of their "corporate secrets" list.... :-)

Usual suspects causing trouble.

Youíll have egg on your faces when Billís do open. Will I get an apology? Unlikely.

That's just it Lou, they're not the 'usual suspects', the silent majority are rising!...

So will that be Bills Peckham or Bills East Dulwich.

Was at time when Bellenden Road wanted to be part of East Dulwich
but now that Peckham is supposedly the Poshest place in South London
Everywhere from Forest Hill to New Cross wants to be part of Peckham.

Forest hill does not want to be ípart of Peckhamí

What a load of cark

About Peckham, and ED for that matter.

When it was still an absolute degenerated shit hole (pretty much), certain posters used to write these ĎOxford Street Of South Londoní laments, back in the day, all nostalgic and misty eyed.

But when it actually starts to rise again, become something of itself, regenerate as it were.
We get a sneering tone about that very same place, as if Peckham has got a high opinion of itself it doesnít deserve.

ĎI remember it when it was blah blah blah and dead dogs roamed the laneí

Please, get back in your can. Itís happening and youíre either part of it or not.
It does not miss you btw, itís looking forward, not back, like it or not.

Why not sell up your wonderfully valuable gaff, in or close to the place youíre now so contemptuous of, and fkoff somewhere else. Live high on the equity and drive someone else to despair with your negativity.

Really, itís not rocket science.

Nah thatís BS, sorry Seabag. Thereís a difference between evolution of a neighbourhood, decline or prosper, itís all relative. But when a artificial and absolute take over happens, the dreaded G word is to blame. People arenít lamenting a treasured past, theyíre simply looking back over their own existence and comparing and contrasting. Entirely different to having their offspring unable to buy in the same neighbourhood their parents and grandparents grew up in. Thatís not right, thatís the market out of control. And itís not just Dulwich or Peckham, London or New York. Itís happening the western world over, and shifting populations at a whim and entirely to the mercy of market forces. Not fair.

I tend to agree..I would love to have remained in Notting hill where my mum grew up and I was born-I still have friends there and even after living in SE for 9 years going to W10 feels like 'home' and holds so many memories.
But sadly when my parents died I decided to move for purely financial reasons.
I was in a tiny flat and couldn't afford anything bigger there because the area is so 'sought after' I won't say gentified because I grew up on a council estate and there are still some pretty rough estates round there but a 1 bed ex council flat sells for about 450k!
my next move will need to be away from london completely-
