But as ever when a planning application arrives there are objections and this one has attracted an objection in its planning application I have never heard before.
The proposed new restaurant is Georgie Porgies and the objection is that its arrival compromises the integrity of the building. So while we cope with the economic depression, mass unemployment and cuts to vital services, someone has time to worry about the integrity of dull grey buildings.
Georgie Porgie may have upset more than just the girls he kissed. But their tears are a little more understandable than Reading’s serial objectors.
