Another spanner in the Works?
One fact I have not seen referred to in all these "plans" of Dudley Council, who were planning to move the Museum contents to "The Red House Cone Site" is that Waterford Glass, I believe, still owns or controls part of the site. The factory shop, namely.
At 12noon today, bids closed for the assets and brands of Waterford, including Stuart Crystal and Edinburgh Crystal.
So it looks as if Dudley Council had not factored this in, (unless they have bid for the complete ownership of the site themselves!). More uncertainty.
How on earth can they take a proper informed decision at the Council meeting in March? It will take at least 3 months for Deloitte the Administrators to sort out the sale of the Waterford assets.
The only sensible thing for Dudley Council to do, is to announce a six month moratorium and consultation process, which should have been done at the outset!
