Wolverhampton temple to get new accommodation for guests

Plans to build two new properties opposite a Sikh temple in Wolverhampton[1] have been given the go-ahead. The new accommodation will be used for visiting dignitaries and guests .

The one-bedroom flats will be on land off Bromley Street in Blakenhall, at the rear of three shops on Dudley[2] Road. The site is owned by the nearby Guru Nanak Sikh Temple in Duncan Street off Sedgley Street, and has served as a car park for both the temple and shops.

A statement to Wolverhampton City Council planners on behalf of the temple and applicant Singh Khalsa said: “The principal elevations for these buildings will face onto Bromley Street, and both will have a private paved area behind metal fencing at the front.

“This will match the existing railings of the adjacent walled car park, which we also see as a visual enhancement to the site. It is primarily used by members of the temple seven days a week and the flats will be used to provide accommodation for holy standing dignitaries, their guests and members of the community who play important roles at the temple.

“There will also be parking space for two vehicles at the the flats, which will be accessible from Bromley Street and also the car park – which will retain 19 spaces. We are also doing suitable landscaping and these buildings have been designed to be in keeping with the architectural character of the area.”
