Just a short enquiry – lots of folk have asked me this weekend what’s going on with Ravens Court, the derelict precinct in the centre of Brownhills, as surveyors and wonks in suits have been seen milling around, opening up closed units and so forth.
Movement at the indoor market in #Brownhills & not the squatters for a change. Surprised the shutters aren't rusted stuck!— Julia Littleton (@julittleton) September 12, 2014
Thanks to Julia for the above tipoff.
I have some clues, but not much and the folk who do know would rather tease that open up.
There is an apparently baseless rumour of Poundland moving in. Nice try, but I doubt that very much. What we do know is that Walsall Council have been pushing hard and have applied just about all the legal pressure they could.
Remember, Ravens Court is privately owned.
