It's in the detail. You would have had to tease out info at the exhibitions.

to be fair to the Estate, they do seem to accept the need for a convenience store in the village and still expect the arrival of such a store by ?September. I suspect that the site at number 88 could more easily have been let to yet another coffee shop and am relieved that a convenience store is still planned.
Meanwhile newspapers can be ordered and delivered by the Red Apple store opposite the Library, they are very efficient [papers come early ] and reliable.

I'm pretty cynical about development in general and the Estate in particular. But these proposals look pretty good to me, at least on a quick look. Street retail needs to respond to online competition.

They (Dulwich Estates)have been promising a convenience store in Dulwich Village well before the previous one closed (Shepards) which I imagine is nearly three years - I will believe it when it happens! in the meantime more vehicles clogging up the road as people drive or get basic food delivered. The footfall of a convenience shop was also promised to support the new butchers, and all the other shops. We are all fed up with waiting and being fobbed off with another ridiculous excuse for a convenience shop not opening.

Simply Fresh has had the lease for over a year and yet they haven't even started a shopfit or applied for an alcohol licence. Shepherd's were paying 48k rent and the Estate wanted 80k, so no wonder they left - and would a Simply Fresh make enough profit? Doubt it.

I live in West Dulwich and dismayed to discover there will be now be 2 orthodontists within a few metres of each other. How useful NOT! And another Yoga place along with the new one in Dulwich Village. Very unbalanced range of outlets in my opinion. However I do like the plaza idea at the crossroads in West dulwich.

At least you have somewhere to buy basic provisions!

Apparently, Harvey Wheeler the estate agent moved out further down the row of shops to enable the ex-Audi dealership premises to be enlarged to give more space for a potential convenience store/supermarket and STILL no supermarket or convenience shop wants to move in! It must be the ridiculous rents that are putting shops off - what else could it be?

'brave being mugged in the park'...?

On the plan it is marked out for another restaurant and as the Ivy Cafe Group was sniffing round earlier this year .............

Yes - pluck up the courage to go through and avoid the odd group of boys on bikes. Even if they are mostly robbing young people, you would feel you would have to intervene and help if it happened near to you.

Wonder if the Estate is responding with rent rises to try to counter falling valuations driven by higher yields. Obviously doesn't work but you might try if you thought it was under-rented
