The Santa Rita café in Leeland Road has been closed for a while and rumour has it that this site is to be redeveloped and flats built above. Then I noticed yesterday that the hairdressers next door was shut. A bit of a blow as that’s where I get what’s left of my hair cut! Maybe he’s on holiday but there wasn’t a sign on the door. Anyway, not necessarily a bad thing to redvelop this little site but with local house prices climbing ever higher, partly driven by Crossrail, there is likely to be more and more of these infill-type developments.
