    Default Fairfield/Newsham park area

    Does anybody know what is happening with the large Victorian terrace facing the Police club on Prescot road. These back onto some large Victorian semis in tha park itself, some of which have been demolished (there was a fire a while ago in one and a man died)

    I originally thought the few empty ones were so because of the usual reasons of area X bad landlords but over the past year, the tinned up houses that were just every so often in the terrace have now joined up. There now seems to be only a couple of tennants left with 95% of the houses empty and it appears to part of some sort of strategy to empty the terrace and demolish or refurb them. These are very substantial houses and although nothing out of the ordinary or architecturally outstanding, they do have a scale and proportion that would be a loss if they were demolished.

    I believe(but i may be wrong) that they want to demolish them to make way for the new road. not certain though.

    I read a while ago that most of them are going to be refurbished. It is part of a much larger plan to improve prescot road which will include the widening of the road, new crossings and environmental improvements.
