The company recently contracted to demolish the old Moseley Dance Centre, whilst retaining its Edwardian façade has overrun its mandate in a manner that spells doom for the quaint turn of the century atmosphere for which Moseley village has become so popular in recent years.
DSM Demolition was yesterday refusing to answer or return calls from Eye On Moseley’s staff reporter. Less reserved in offering an opinion on the local tragedy was Roy Thomas from the Moseley Local History Society who described himself as “fucking apoplectic at the desecration of this valuable piece of Moseley’s heritage.”
It is predicted that the loss of Moseley’s valued Edwardian shop frontages will spark an exodus from the once popular ‘village in the city centre’. The price of property is set to plummet and in response to this alarming trend a spokeswoman from Moseley Community Forum said that the Forum was already considering legal action against the demolition company.
It is thought that this action would take the form of a joint petition for damages and loss of income brought by Moseley’s rich and famous who are set to lose millions as the bottom falls out of the Moseley property market. The list of petitioners is thought to read like a who’s who of Moseley society. Understandably Moseley Community Forum was reluctant to give further information as to whose interests it was actually acting in.
