Wolverhampton Street is a much-used road into and away from Dudley town centre. It's generally looked 'tired' and scruffy for several years.
Two large plots at the junction of Wolverhampton Street and School Street are in a particularly distressing state. Despite repeated discussion with the Council, these large areas have deteriorated further; one has huge amounts of rubbish strewn across it. The other plot includes an increasingly-dilapidated building whose roof is crumbling.
Vegetation encroaches on public footpaths from both plots. A very rough public path past one plot has had holes down into the plot - a danger particularly to toddlers.
People effected by the ugliness of these plots incłude:
* local parents and children on the way to Jessons School
* pedestrians making their way into/out of Dudley town centre
* thousands of vehicle drivers and passengers each day
We call on Dudley Council to serve enforcement action on the owners of 74-75 & 72-73 Wolverhampton Street, requiring that they make safe and tidy what they own.
