Palmers Close Garage Site – Earmarked for Housing.

Palmers Close former  Garage Site – Ashmore Park

I have received the following information relating to the former Palmer Close Garage Site.

In recent years the Garage site has been plagued by Fly Tipping and other anti social activities.

This latest correspondence indicates that an alternative use for the site is now being considered. Here is what Wolverhampton Homes have told me –

“I am writing to inform you that the Council owned garage site adjacent to your property, as shown on the red line plan overleaf, has been identified for disposal by the Council and, subject to approval being granted by Cabinet, will go forward to auction in due course.

Prior to the sale of this land at auction, the Council shall be applying for outline planning permission for residential development.  Thereafter, the successful purchaser shall apply for full planning permission, which will show the proposed development, including the location of any new buildings.  As part of the planning application process, all adjoining residents shall be provided with the opportunity to submit their views/comments on the proposals at this stage.”

Can I urge you. If you have a comment please contact the the numbers and the person that is named in the paragraph below.- 


If you have any comments you would like to make regarding this site, or any queries concerning the potential disposal of this land, please contact  (01902) 551345 or at
