'Eyesore' Powergen demolition in full swing

Solihull Editorial 16th May, 2017   0

DEMOLITION of the ‘eye-sore’ Powergen building has begun.

The building, which has been vacant for more than 20 years, is being torn down in a bid to make way for a new residential scheme.

The scheme is being led by Shirley Advance and will see a 261-apartment ExtraCare retirement village, 113 new homes and a petrol filling station on the Hasluck Green Road site.

Over the years the plans have been faced with opposition including a bid to make the former building a listed building.
