Mobility Shop
- Passer by (19th Nov 2021  19:09:03)

Walking passed the old mobility shop and what a sorry sight, does anyone know what is going to happen with it. Quite an eyesore, such a shame.

Hi,
I hear there was a disagreement with the last tenant, and landlord of unpaid rent. The last renter has moved up north, so therefore will not continue with the premises.
Hopefully a new business can be found in the future.
The shop in our local conservation area of the Square, has a lot of history of different uses for generations. Grocers for fresh produce of the then privately owed Royal Anchor, also a Chemist, to name a few.

What does Liphook need for a shop in central location in a rapidly growing local population?

Clothes shop.butchers.fresh fish shop. Shoe shop. Jewellery/Anything but another! estate agents/Cafes/takeaways/resturant/hairdresses no disrespect to any of these businesses the ones here are fantastic just to much of the same thing. Only my opinion

Be great spot for Shankleys to return into, please not an estate agents. It’s most likely it will remain as is for many years as things tend to do in Liphook

Paul, the grocers was called Bells, I didn't know the Anchor owned it.

The grocery shop bells was where the bike shop is .My wife worked in there as the cashier. Back around the First World War the shop in question was a black smiths Windibanks a picture of horses tied up outside is at the heritage centre. I don’t think it was ever a grocery store. Liphook has changed so much but I totally agree we must try and save our historic conservation square.

If you read on EHDcs website there is a report on the square. It says that the conservation area has been allowed to have too many modern additions and more should be done to preserve the good bits. Sadly there are too many modern facias and in my opinion should be replaced with traditional looking frontages.

Hi,
I agree Joe about your comments from EHDC.
To many individual landlords/tenants allowed to "do their own thing" in a conservation area. Who checks, or enforces regulation, to preserve our village centre now, and for future generations?
Is it a money-making exercise for the local businesses just to pay their business rates? The Council don't care what happens in Liphook from their Petersfield offices, and they don't live here.

Would be nice if the Indian take away on the corner of Headley Road could be improved. The state of the building really is a sorry sight.

Re: Mobility Shop

I agree, some of the businesses could look much nicer - a lick of paint, more traditional signs etc, to fit a conservation square. Some of the businesses look fantastic, but others shabby and ugly. The Kelway Law urban turquoise corner with the shabby front entrance to Lloyds is another hotspot, along with the Madhuban. It must be very frustrating being so close the the road with dirt and splashing etc, but a tidy up would be much appreciated by local people. Doesn’t have to be expensive, just a clean and lick of paint/weeding in some cases. The mobility shop is an absolute eyesore.

Noticed earlier that the mobility shop now has a sign up for Liphook Auto Services I thought that was in Lindford not Liphook ? The windows are now all covered in blue
