Local Labour Councillor Nick Clarke, who represents Greenhill, says the site of the former Cocked Hat Pub on Cropston Drive is a "disgrace" and is calling on the Tory run District Council to act.
Nick said; "The site is a total eye sore and it's a disgrace that it has been left to deteriorate to its current state by the owners. The owners are supposed to keep the site tidy, but nothing ever appears to be done by them."
Nick went on to say, "The Council have money available to buy land that is suitable for affordable housing, and this site is ideal. I will be putting forward a very strong case for the Council to buy this land and get some affordable and social housing built on it. It's high time the Tories took action, the people of Greenhill deserve better than putting up with this eye sore."
