Edgbaston masterplan gears up as homes are demolished

DEMOLITION work is set to start on a dozen houses compulsorily purchased to enable the expansion of facilities at Warwickshire County Cricket Club’s Edgbaston ground.

The derelict homes, in Pershore Road, occupy a two-acre plot which has been sold to the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) to marry up with existing landholdings. The move will enable the comprehensive Edgbaston scheme to be developed.

The demolition work is planned to be completed in time for the start of the 2013 cricket season in April.For the full story register now for free or login below...
