Back plan for La Sagesse; Your shout.

WHEN Freddy Shepherd purchased the La Sagesse site, he must have known the local residents would raise objections to any change or use, irrespective of how good it was.

What do these people actually want? I suspect what they really want is to leave La Sagesse in aspect, its structure preserved for the visual pleasure of the surrounding neighbourhood.

Well, I'm afraid that is a nogo.

I trust the council will take - unlike the local protesters - a view that this development will bring life into a historic building by introducing it as a sound and practical way to bring the building back to life.

And, as far as the residents are concerned, I hear a lot of objections from them but I hear very little sound proposals as to what they would do with La Sagesse on a commercial basis.
