“We’ve had nothing but problems here,” said Donald Langford, owner of Meriden Fish Bar. “This is just another nail in the coffin for the shops.”

Shops and eateries located beneath Cygnet House and Plover House in York Way were visited on Friday, February 9th, and informed that assessments could lead to their closure. The businesses are currently awaiting the results of these assessments.

This news is likely to add to the concerns of residents in the area, who have already raised questions about the safety of the buildings. It is unclear at this time what will happen to the businesses affected, but the situation is likely to cause further disruption and uncertainty for those involved.
