    We are about to open a retail shop at 127 East Street and the fishmonger is completely blocking the way into our shop. He's also parking his van illegally on East Street right outside our front window, blocking all visibility to our shop. He's got fish on the wooden benches in the street which smell terrible as the fish water is dripping into the wood. He sloshes all the old fish water down the gulley in the street where it sits for days after he's gone. He has an additional table with fish on which is blocking our other side shop window (on Church Rd) so our shop is completely blocked from all angles. We have a person working in the shop who is very allergic to fish so this is a massive problem for us. The smell is not conducive with selling children's clothes, plants, upholstery etc. We understand he was placed there because our shop had been empty for a long time but the circumstances have changed now so we'd really appreciate him relocating where the entrance to a shop is on East Street not on a side street like us. That way if he is situated in a new side street he won't be blocking a shop entrance by being there. This is a very big problem for us and we'd be very grateful if somebody could resolve this asap as we are planning to open in 3 weeks time. Thank you so much, it's very much appreciated. We've attached photos so you can see his positioning. East St Emporium Louise Mackintosh louisemackintosh@hotmail.co.uk
