Its emerged that there are 3,462 empty privately-owned properties, in Wolverhampton and of all the Wards in the City. Park ward has the most empty private homes with 327 standing vacant, while Wednesfield North has the least number of private homes with 89 standing empty. Other wards with high numbers include St Peter’s with 289, Graiseley with 278 and Blakenhall with 222.
Housing is a big issue in Wolverhampton and in Wednesfield. All three Councillors have been working hard to ensure that we have identified any unused City Council land here in Wednesfield North. In the last 2 years we have identified land and have seen some 19 new homes built on redundant land here in the Ward. This in turn provides financial resources for the City Council, homes and dwellings for the market. That then provides jobs in the construction, and ultimately Counciltax revenue for the city when the homes are occupied.
