Land Remains Derelict at Former Lord Nelson Pub

DISAPPOINTED: Resident's association chairman Tom Simpson by the former pub site. Picture: Mark ScottSandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.) is calling for a private investor to buy the former land where the Lord Nelson Public House used to stand.

The area looks very bad to anyone who visits the area since the building burnt down 5 years ago, and the residents association believes that anyone who enters the city by its northern most gateway would be seeing it at its worst.

Residents have now been told by an article in Monday nights Sentilnel that the £75,000 priced plot of land has failed to attract bidders at the auction.

A comment from Tom Simpson, Secretary, S.A.G.E. (pictured above) said in the newspaper report “If anyone was interested in taking up the site and carrying on with the development they would have the full support of the residents’ association.”

Further comments reported in the Sentinel article say “A spokesman for auctioneers Butters John Bee said: We have had no instructions from the client. At this time, nothing is happening and it may well stay in his ownership, also it added that it could go back up for auction but I doubt it will be this year.”
