The Buzz Bingo in Bushbury Lane, Wolverhampton, one of 26 Buzz Bingo clubs closed in July 2020, is to get a new lease of life… as a storage and distribution depot.
Having received planning permission from the local council last week, the site of the once-popular bingo hall is now set to be turned into an industrial storage unit for Essex-based real estate agents Broadside Properties.
According to the BirminghamMail, a report into the Buzz Bingo Wolverhampton site said:
“The site of Buzz Bingo at Bushbury Lane has not been trading successfully in recent years.”
“Of course, the current Covid-19 crisis has created significant additional financial pressures within the leisure industry. The business has now closed and the owner of the site is planning to convert the building for employment usage.
“A visitor to the site may perceive that the building was originally constructed as part of the Fordhouse Road Industrial Estate. So changing it for general industrial use seems to be a natural choice in reusing and generating income.”
The former Buzz Bingo property has been vacant since it closed its doors for the last time on July 15th, 2020. In total, the site is approximately 1.01 hectares and is situated approximately two miles north of Wolverhampton city centre.
