windmills Timms mill site at Goole still undetermined

The site around the remaining tower of Timms windmill at Goole has been cleared for a while of the additional mill buildings that were added as the milling firm outgrew the capacity of the windmill. The firm shut down in April 2001, and the site has planning permission for a retail development, provided none of the stores is a food store. However, the developers are having trouble attracting an anchor retailer, and are trying to vary the conditions so that they can include a supermarket in the plans.

The exact fate of the windmill itself is undetermined - a cafe or restaurant have both been suggested in the past, though thankfully plans insist that the tower is preserved in some form. The development is provisionally called the Five Sails Retail Centre, because the flour mill originally had five sails. Mills: [Goole]
