Bennetts Tyres reprieved

Bennetts Tyres, which has operated from premises on Kilton Hill for twenty years, has had a reprieve from planned demolition under the Masterplan. Out of the blue a letter arrived from the Council, which told the Bennett brothers that their business was safe – for now.

The brothers still don’t know how long they can remain in the premises.

“We don’t know whether we’re coming or going,” said Steve, “This has been going on for three years. It’s ridiculous.”

Two other businesses on Kilton Hill, Bradley & Foulds and LowKost Taxis, will also remain. LowKost Taxis told the Messenger:

“The Council said they wouldn’t be going ahead with the plan because they’ve run out of money to build the housing proposed.”

Bennetts Tyres – car tyres, van tyres, exhausts, batteries and tyre repairs – 270 0752.
