Wolvo is absolutely rammed at the moment. No tables in Spoons or M&S.

Turns out, that unit (if its the one I'm thinking of) is going to be something more interesting: https://www.expressandstar.com/news/local-hubs/wolverhampton/2019/10/18/gin-bar-and-distillery-to-open-in-former-wolverhampton-costa-coffee/

Looks like work has started on the new Wren Kitchens showroom at St. John’s retail park.
Was over there the other day and Homebase is badly in need of a refurbishment.

Age UK is closing on Darlington Street, and JJ Ruddell jeweller is expanding into the units. Know they'll do a really good job of it, and this will create a fantastic shop front.

Before:



Render:



They have this branch and one in Harborne. Wonder what their plans for that are?

This is now well underway with at least the first storey constructed.

Quote:
15018/LA/CS

Redevelopment - three storey building with eight apartments, with car rental show room and shop on ground floor.

Backs onto Enterprise Rentacar. Unsure if this is connected to them.

Existing site:



Replacement:



This is the current Enterprise at the rear of this site:



Very difficult to get in or out of.

In the past the council would have turned down residential on this island. The refurbishment of the police station as flats went through on appeal however.
The apartments replacement for Holme Cottage, Bee Lane, Fordhouses, is also well underway. Framework complete I think.

They're still pushing on with Lion Farm retail outlet. What's the point?

Also The Royal redevelopment is in a funding crisis...

I think the hamburger is the way forward. Think I drew up that idea a while back? Ish? (I just had one big island).

Edit: I can no longer find ANY info on phases 1 and 2. Anyone have maps?

Wow, thats ALOT of land, I'm not too familiar with this road, but I'm guessing it's quite a congestion magnet if they're looking at those kind of improvements!

It's got to be one of the most congested roads in the country. Was originally meant to be a motorway in fact.

I use it daily and it's horrendous. The main road between Wolverhampton and Walsall, and the main route into Wolverhampton by motorway. Plus Neachells Lane industrial estate which is HUGE.

Here's phase 1.

https://wolverhampton.moderngov.co.u...20Brochure.pdf

Something I hadn't noticed is that it opens up Old Heath Road as a viable alternative route for some journeys. At current the junction with the A454 makes it awful.

Interesting read, those are some crazy big plans, good on Wolves for going full steam with this one.
