Local eyesore facing demolition?

A local eyesore which is attracting vandalism and anti-social behaviour has taken a step closer to being demolished.

Several long-term unused garages bordering Ashmore Park (adjacent to Wednesfield Aces Cycle Speedway) have been broken into, leading to damage, fly tipping, and graffiti.

The garages, which have been in a poor state of repair for a number of years have been boarded up to little affect as they are regularly broken into and used to dump rubbish and industrial waste. Drug paraphernalia can also be found on floors and fires have been lit inside.

After being contacted by Wv11.co.uk, Wolverhampton Homes Communications Manager, Kate Hughes told us: “The Garages are set to be demolished soon and we are currently negotiating with the 2 remaining tenants, but until alternative locations are found we can’t demolish them”.

She went on to say: “However, our maintenance team are going out to make the site more secure soon and I will post a picture to Fix My Street after this has happened”.

As you can see from our photos above, the garages are hardly a welcoming sight to those visiting the park and cycle speedway track – we hope the issues is resolved ASAP
