I have for some time expressed my anger and dismay at the condition this land has been left in. The site is in a prominent position, and yet it ranks as 10th on a city wide list of the Council’s derelict and nuisance properties.
Whilst I welcome any improvements to this eyesore site, I cannot help but think that, were it not for the imminent opening of the Wellbeing Centre, we might have waited a further 6 years for matters to be progressed.
Tidying up the site must be done as a minimum; the Council then need to actively work at marketing this site to ensure that any re-development happens quickly, and offers the local community some pay-back for the years of neglect this site has endured. The proposed measures may make the site more aesthetically pleasing, but they do not resolve the problem.
