That's OK, sorted now
I was just about to say - someone's added it for you
So I take it that this is the Ipswich Supercharger that I have been waiting for since 2017. Slightly out of place and a bit delayed but great news nonetheless!
Looks like it is there now
EDIT: Sorry, didn't see earlier post until I saved this. No idea why ...
Proposed sites bare little resemblance to actual sites. Tesla have been mucked about by landlords in the past, so now sites may be chosen even by "first to complete the red tape". Ditto with dates ... it seems getting a site to the point that it can move to construction can take ages ... and there are also sites which have the stalls all installed and are not yet live - because Landlord has decided they want an arm-and-leg. Those sites have been "complete" for well over a year ...
Photos from Glasgow Eurocentral/Dakota Supercharger from about 10 days ago (planned opening date still unknown)...

New photo of Sindlesham on PlugShare. 16 stalls.
This is poor. This one was announced same time as Perth Broxden, but Broxden has been open for ages. Who is messing about? Landlord, Tesla, Local Authority, Electricity company (Scottish Power?). Anyone know?
Missing off your list of possible suspects is any landowner over whose land power cables need to run, who see a big payday (or one in particular at another site who is apparently simply refusing). The least likely culprit is Tesla themselves.
Fleet southbound has been ready, visually at least, for a couple of years and still isn't live. I think there's a third where one of the parties has gone bust.
Back in January a local owner who regularly speaks to Tesla said they were planning Perth Q1 and Eurocentral Q2. So rather than being poor, so far it seems to be following that plan - and the same source said that there might be more activity at Eurocentral soon(TM).
I'm speculating now but presumably it saved on costs to have one team do the groundworks at Perth and Eurocentral at the same time even though Tesla knew that the power supply at Eurocentral wouldn't be available until Q2.
Disclaimer: reliable sources for news about Supercharger network developments are as rare as unicorns
Euro central appears to be near the Strathclyde Country Park. I am there in July. Very handy.
Yep it's only about quarter of an hour away - "Dakota Hotel Eurocentral" is the best term to find the upcoming SuC on Google Maps.
Its a 35 minute round trip (unless you happen to be passing of course ...) There are 4x 7Kw Type-2 in the adjacent Watersports Centre.(needs CYC, but that's pretty universal for Scotland) so would just be short walk from Strathclyde Country Park
Fort William in the west, would be grand!
Elveden Supercharges being upgraded on Tuesday (28th May 2019) for Model 3 CCS compatibility. 6 of 8 completed when I took this picture.
Grantham news. One of the existing 8 stalls (nearest the trench dug for the expansion work noted earlier) is currently unavailable/behind a temporary fence.
Is there any information on the Supercharger based at Leicester Forest East?
It's been in the pipeline, since 2017.
Last rumour I saw from a pretty reliable source was don’t hold your breath. Something to do with power supply problems and a strong likelihood the services are moving to another site.
I pass the Leicester southbound every evening going home from work and did pass through the services last week. The Costa/Starbuck (sorry can not remember which coffee brand) is nearly finished with what looks like charging spaces (looks like approx 6nr) to it but only cables popping out the ground at the pavement end to each bay, although I can not confirm if they are for SC. I can pass through tonight as it seems to be moving fast in terms of construction and confirm if there are any better updates. I'll try and do a drive by photoshooting for you!
What was the verdict David? Very keen for LFE SuC!!
