The former Willow House elderly persons home on Long Close Lane, next to the Bar Walls, is still empty. The buildings, which are in reasonable condition, were abandoned by the Council in early 2017.
The site was slated for use as student flats following a successful planning application in October last year.
The site was then subject to a wrangle about the use of, and continued access to, adjacent green space.
The security fencing makes a poor backdrop for the many visitors who walk along the adjacent walls.
Further down Long Moor Lane, highway officials have allowed bushes to completely block the public footpath; adding to the general impression of neglect in the area.
