Is there a new arrival for Wessex close?

Untitled 4

Wessex Close has stood empty now for about 8 years. Imagery from Bing! maps.

I don’t have a great deal of information about this, I’m sorry to say, but I thought it might be worthwhile to draw readers attention to the following event, happening next Thursday, 16th May, at the Parkview Centre in Brownhills (That’s the library).

Thursday 16th May: Wessex Close public consultation. Park View Centre, Chester Road North. 3.30-7pm.

Drop in to talk to Walsall Housing Group colleagues about our proposals for the site.  We plan to build 22 one and two bed apartments for rent.

I was vaguely aware there were plans for the site of the now-demolished maisonettes, but nothing appears to have been submitted through planning yet, and up to now, it’s all been rather vague.

I’m all in favour of development on the site – the land has been empty for a number of years, and we need the social housing, especially in the current climate. It’ll be interesting to see what WHG have planned. The development at Deakin Avenue is now well underway, and the one up by Anchor Bridge is very close to finished, and looks superb.

If you want to find out, and maybe influence, what comes next, do pop along. If Walsall Housing Group have any further information, I’d love to share it here.
