Concern at dangerous empty chip shop in Eccleshill

First published in News Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Photograph of the Author by , T&A Reporter

Children narrowly avoided injury when high winds ripped a board off a “death trap” former fish and chip shop in Eccleshill.

The youngsters were in a car outside the crumbling former Plaice to Eat shop, when the board slammed on to the vehicle’s roof. Now, renewed calls have been made to sort out the chippy that is thought to have been the subject of a lithograph by Bradford artist David Hockney in the 1950s.

Simon Loveitt and Councillor Geoff Reid (Lib Dem, Eccleshill), chairman and vice-chairman of Eccleshill Steering Group, said the boarded-up building had been empty for years.

Coun Reid said Bradford Council had given the building’s owner until the end of yesterday to secure it.

I noticed yesterday 2 joiners working on it.
I now sadly read this article and what they were doing, yesterday had hoped they were going to refit the fish and chip shop and it reopen.
The place as it is a disgrace and the owners should be made to put the building in good order, come on Council use your powers.
