The travelodge could even be part of the Molineux Quarter, thinking about it. (Now called the Molineux Campus, by the way, unless it's an error)

I think the most likely is Westside, though. OK, it's not the Hampton by Hilton we were originally getting, but last we heard the hotel element may be scrapped...

The hotel element has as of yet been removed from the Interchange plans, being replaced with a green wall and cycle hub, so I don't think it can be there. I don't think the other aspects of the Commercial District have advanced enough to have a Name.

And of course we already have the Premier Inn extension (completed), Novotel extension, Wulfrun Hotel extension and Wetherspoons hotel in this area.

I believe the Molineux Campus is literally the part relating to the University, the council plan is still Quarter.

Theyíre broadly different projects. I imagine the hotel from West Side is gone and this is more likely uni related

Region bucks national trend to show strong growth in house building.


The region refers to the three LEPs - Greater Birmingham and Solihull, the Black Country, Coventry and Warwickshire.

It's good news, but it does seem like loads of housing is being built and nothing else! I do wonder where everyone is going to work who move to these places when most of the former industrial areas are turning into housing estates.

Apparently, and I use that word in the loosest term given its Friday night and word of mouth, but apparently ASDA are closing, and Fosun buying the land! Relocated Molineux?

While again I don't know the source of the rumour, apparently we're looking at a hotel and an extended car park on the site. Which would explain the Travelodge new hotel perhaps?

I think they'll have to look at turning Sainsbury's into an ASDA, perhaps extending it into the gym that was originally meant to be part of the Sainsbury's store before they downsized it. I prefer Sainsbury's but ASDA is infinitely more popular in Wolverhampton.

Edit:

Continues another rumour which is that the council want there to be several MSCPs dotted around the outside of the Ring Road, to serve the city. So we could well see a large MSCP on the ASDA site, perhaps with the existing bus service to ASDA acting as a Park and Ride. I've often wondered where these MSCPs would go; one here and perhaps Blakenhall are the only places I can see them fitting.

Official Wolverhampton and Black Country Development Thread 4!

Although Iím not a fan of Asda, I think this isnít great for the north of the city as it is already poorly served when it comes to Supermarkets.

Morrisonís is always busy, imagine how worse that will be if they close Asda and they will loose the student customers, a lot of students live around there and shop at Asda.

Waiting to see if the new Aldi at Sun Street relives some of the pressure of the Aldi at the Goodyear site, cause that is also serving well above itís capacity also!

Nothing seems to have happened at i9 since the hoardings have gone up. I know it'll happen sooner or later, but its always frustrating when there seems to be a big gap between hoardings going up and thongs actually starting properly.

Great updates as always guys, thanks! Find myself always checking this thread each week for any news.

In regards to the Asda rumour, I too have heard this, the first time a few months ago, and a couple of times since.

I use this Asda a fair bit as it's the closest supermarket to the missus house, and it's normally always pretty busy when I go. And as others have said, it's hugely popular and ideal location-wise for the students. Would seem crazy to get rid of it.

It would only be the one side the row where favourite chicken is, those buildings havenít been looked after and look a mess, and as Victoria Street is being pedestrianised it would be a great opportunity to help link the Wulfrun Centre with the new Westside development.
