Future of Bliss and Chilli White still in doubt as administrators called in

First published in News

THE future of two Bournemouth bars that recently closed without warning appears increasingly uncertain.

Bliss and Chilli White in St Peter’s Road are operated by Yellowhammer Bars but have been “temporarily closed” for over a week.

There has been no statement from Yellowhammer and no indication as to when or if the venues will reopen.

Now it is being reported that a subsidiary of Yellowhammer is on the verge of entering administration and that administrators from RSM Tenon are being lined up to oversee this process.

A notice to appoint administrators for Yellowhammer Trading Ltd was filed on January 16.

It stated: “The chairman reported that, in view of ongoing financial difficulties, the company has consulted with RSM Tenon to take advice in connection with the financial position of the company and the options available.

“The company is insolvent as defined in the Insolvency Act 1986.”

It is believed Yellowhammer Trading Ltd is a trading entity for the group. Nobody from Yellowhammer bars was available for comment.

So what future for Bournemouths night-time economy ? Love it or loathe it the bars and clubs did attract visitors who helped fill struggling hotels and give people jobs.
.
St Peters Road is now an absolute disgrace with its neglected empty properties and now these bars have closed it can only get worse. Where does this fit in with Beesleys town centre vision ?
Selling off and building on car parks isn't going to revive the town centre if the existing properties are allowed to stand empty and decay. Why build more shops and restaurant units when there are so many standing empty ?
.
Bournemouth needs a professional and sustainable regeneration policy. Beelseys town centre vision doesn’t address the problems, its just a property developers charter and could actually add to the problems of urban decay in the existing town centre locations like St Peters Road, Old Christchurch Road, and Holdenhurst Road. And, if the best idea the Council can come up with to revive the towns flagging tourism is a butterly farm then we’re doomed.

The fact is the concept of a town center is a thing of the past and is destined for the history books. There will be areas where people will go to eat and drink just like in the US but when it comes to shopping, which is the main back bone or any town centre, the internet and out of town retail parks are taking over. There is nothing anyone can do to stop this.
