Pressure mounts over future of derelict Trowbridge site
Discussions about the future of the former Peter Black site, in Trowbridge, are continuing.
During last Thursday’s Trowbridge Area Board meeting, its chairman, Trowbridge Town and Wiltshire Councillor Graham Payne, said that negotiations between GVA Grimley, the agent acting for the site’s receivers, were working hard to sell the derelict factory which has been empty for many years.
The board have continually stressed that they’d like to see the building knocked down in time for the opening of the new £17 million St Stephens Place leisure development, based opposite, which is expected to open in October.
Cllr Payne said: “I’m going to keep up continual pressure on this one on behalf of the people of Trowbridge.
"I’m aware that there are a few confidential discussions ongoing which I think could be advantageous to the people of Trowbridge in the near future.”
The board have previously said they’d like to see the site turned into a car park in the short term.
