SO9198 : Victoria Street, Wolverhampton

Victoria Street, Wolverhampton
Victoria Street, Wolverhampton
Although less than three hundred metres from the city centre, this side of the lower end of Victoria Street is only now becoming the target of the developers. These old frontages, near the junction with Cleveland Street, are unlikely to last much longer, because compulsory purchase orders were served in 2006.

However the huge plans for regeneration by building the "Summer Row" shopping development are now on hold due (a) to stalling tactics by the owners of the Wulfrun Centre, and (b) the severe financial implications of the "credit crunch" which have now developed following the inept practices of some mortgage companies and banks in all parts of the world.
