Millbank Street Up date

The Planning Permission for the House of Multiple Occupancy in Millbank Street that was submitted to the Planning Committee in December 2017, has now been withdrawn. Here is what Wolverhampton City Council Planning team has officially informed me.


“The application has been formally withdrawn and so is no longer under consideration.”


That means that there is no HMO being considered for this site.


But the issue of the site and the house has not yet be resolved, as the agent will want to do something with this property. So everyone will have to be alert! If it is to remain the same as it was a family home. I am sure that everyone locally will be in favour.


I can say however that if there is a further application submitted I have it from the City Council that they will of course consult residents.


I must admit it was good to see so many local residents coming together in the way that the community did, to make their views very clear, about the unwanted planning application.

Make no mistake it was very much the unity of your purpose that helped convince the decision makers!

Please keep together and be alert about the owners alternative proposals, if he comes up with any.
