[quote author=ktype link=board=general;num=1339019939;start=15#27 date=06/08/12 at 18:16:16]Seven Kings is blighted by the numerous fast food establishments that the council has allowed to proliferate all along the High Road.
 
 
So Ktype....Just as Ilford Lane from the station right down to The Loxford Polyclinic is.
 
How and why did the council get away with allowing so many food outlets to open in such a small area?

You are always asking these sorts of questions. Do you really expect to find any answers here? Why don't you go to the council's website and raise your issues there?

And you think the council will respond?
 
Several years ago there was a mass protest to Redbridge Council regarding the (then) proposed McDonald's in the High Road.
 
It emerged that outline planning permission had been granted three years earlier and couldn't be reversed.
 
So, why did none of the local residents have any inkling that this was happening? Because Redbridge Council followed the rules!
 
When the planning application was originally received, they notified nearby residents, giving the usual period for the application to be inspected and objections lodged.
 
But all the nearby 'residents' were, in the main, used car showrooms and the like, whose owners don't live locally and couldn't care the proverbial monkey's toss - plus Aldi, of course, in whose car park the new McDonald's was to be built!
 
So now you know how it happens. Once the council lets the rot set in, it takes on roller coaster proportions ...

Please, please, please, will you try to edit your quotes properly?
 
This may help: http://www.ilford.org.uk/YaBBHelp/posting.html
 
Note how each instruction in square brackets, e.g.: [format] must be accompanied by an end command, preceded by a slash / also in square brackets, e.g.: [/format]
 
When editing, it is important not to delete these commands - even the loss of one square bracket will stop the formatting working.

The answer is simple really.
There's a demand for that type of food in certain areas.....witness school kids getting their breakfasts and evening meals from them because parents are too idle to cook real food.
The council will allow it because it means income for them,they'd rather get business rates than empty shop rates.

A couple of points about the Seven Kings McDonalds:
 
It was a new building on a car park, so no empty premises.
It was planned from the start as a drive through, so targeted at out of area customers (I think the drive through bit is open 24 hours).
 
As far as the council collecting business rates is concerned, they do, but it is collected on behalf of the Treasury who then divide up the pot and award a portion of it to each local authority throughout the country. The tax paid by MacDonald's would hardly make much difference to the size of the national pot, so it is a moot point as to whether Redbridge ended up with more money.

The reason I ask is that  I try to guess what the person is like going by the answers to posts. In your case I had two choices, either the person replying was still at school or the village idiot.It seems you are not at school. Roll Eyes

After reading some of these postings besides the fact that I have just had a walk round the part of Ilford I used to live in about a few hours ago it makes me so glad that I got out of that place. The way that Ilford South in particular has been allowed to become sucha cesspit in parts is an absolute disgrace.
