Bentley Bridge Shopping Park Is Thriving!

The Bentley Bridge Shopping Park is a very crucial piece of infrastructure for Wednesfield, both in the retail offer it has developed, and also for the jobs that are established there.

It’s also important to Wolverhampton’s own future, though much more is written about the City Centre offer – than about Wednesfield Bentley Bridge Shopping Park’s contribution to our City’s retail and financial success.

This year has seen a very great rise in interest in the Shopping Park and the latest footfall figures which I have been shown informs that the Shopping Park footfall is now up 25.5% on last year. It is fair to say that bentley-bridge!

With footfall close to 80,000 on a peak week like Christmas, Residents of Wednesfield should recognise that this development is crucially important to our Village continued future development.

Wednesfield Labour Councillors are still urging the new owners of the Shopping Park to introduce a toilet unit into the development, as the footfall certainly deserves one.

The latest response that I have had from the new owners of the Shopping Park is that they have a design and there is contact between the operators and the City Council .

Wednesfield Labour Councillors have informed the new property managers that this toilet development is crucial to the future development of the Shopping Park.
