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.
Wolverhampton Homes has been granted possession of garages in Wednesfield which have been a magnet for antisocial behaviour. A judge at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court ruled yesterday (Tuesday) that Wolverhampton Homes must take possession of the garages on Griffiths Drive, Ashmore Park and the remaining occupant now has 14 days (until 15 June) to vacate the garages. Once the garages have been vacated, the process of demolition will begin.
Following our news stories in February and March which highlighted problems with a set of derelict garages in Ashmore Park, we can now reveal that Wolverhampton Homes (the organisation, which manages Wolverhampton City Councilâ€™s homes, shops and garages) is taking legal action against a former tenant who is refusing to vacate the garages on Griffiths Drive.
Once the tenant has been evicted the garages will be demolished and it is hoped that the site can be used to create additional free parking for local residents and shoppers.
