Ashmore Park Derelict Garages

Six months after WV11.co.uk first raised the issue, the fate of a set of derelict garages in Ashmore Park continues to drag on after the local Tenants and Residents Association launched a petition against demolition.

On the 1st June, Wolverhampton Homes (who owns the site) was granted possession of the garages by a judge at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court who ruled that the remaining occupant who refused to leave had 14 days (until 15th June) to vacate the premises.

According to a recent Wolverhampton Homes press release, constructive dialogue with Ashmore Park Tenants and Residents Association about the garages is ongoing.

Mark Henderson, Director of Housing, said: “We are grateful for the Ashmore Park Tenants and Residents Association’s assistance and hope to be able to confirm the outcome of the further consultation shortly.”

Meanwhile, the garages slip further and further into disrepair, with visitors to the Wednesfield Aces Speedway track left facing the sight of every unit having been smashed open and filled with rubbish.

What do you think should happen to the garages?

One reply on “Ashmore Park garages saga drags on”

There are times when you want to express anguish. The garages are beyond repair. They are a health and safety danger and a nuisance in that pests must be using them in their current condition. It would be safer for all if they were demolished.

Why would such a commonsense decision be witheld? and where is the logic for the Residents and Tenants Association to hold up such a scheme when a child or some other person could be injured.
Just take a look at the photographs it say's it all!
