Royal Mail Development Plans Threaten Future Of Langley Records

PUBLISHED: 30th Mar 2015

Royal Mail have submitted planning application that if successful, threatens the existence of Langley Records in Molesey, a locally known record store that has been established for over 40 years. 

Owner Geoff Langley, 79 opened the shop on Walton Road, Molesey nearly 42 years  ago and the store holds thousands of valuable and rare vinyl records. "I will probably  have to retire, I cannot imagine I will find another place like this and there is nothing  in Molesey that measures up". Mr Langley said.

In ongoing disputes Royal Mail even cut off the heating to the premises during the  winter in 2013. Around 14 years ago a rental figure was agreed years after the  original lease had ended. Mr Langley says he has paid every penny of it and that  Royal Mail have even started refunding payments in light of the new planning  application.

 Both Mr and Mrs Langley were diagnosed with cancer during this time and Mrs  Langley passed away from the disease in 2007. Mr Langley said "Royal Mail thinks it  is going to get everything its own way but I don’t think it will – it’s worth fighting  for".

 If you agree with Mr Langley you can help by adding comments on the Elmbridge  Council planning application site
