It was this post from almost a year ago that got me thinking that First may simply close the doors on Padmore Street and walk away...

That said, with a change of use and some serious ground decontamination work it would be an ideal site for extensive canal side residential apartments and a few more business properties along Pheasant Street. All in the melting pot indeed!
Vehicle and Fleet discussions for First Midland Red Buses Limited or its predecessor, Midland Red West Limited.
The redevelopment of the Padmore Street area was proposed as Phase 2 to the original planning application for the Shrub Hill retail park. The old Do-It-All and Beehive were demolished and the road realigned over the canal to remove the awkward bridge and corner round the car park/burial ground. The demolition of the bus depot for housing/further retail units was cancelled. I believe there should be another retail unit where the bus wash is too.
