Have your say about possible demolition of former DM Rock building
The historical importance of a former Burbage car sales centre has staved off its destruction.
The old DM Rock building on Rugby Road was due to be flattened along with adjacent units once used by Johnsons dry cleaners.
Goodman Real Estate had submitted a notice to the borough council asking if prior approval was required for the demolition.
The company is behind the wider Sketchley Brook scheme, which has already seen redevelopment of swathes of scrubland and disused industrial plots stretching from the Ashby Canal to Hinckley Railway Station.
Works were expected to begin on February 1 and last around a month.
The Fulcrum has not yet materialised. And the old Sketchley engine house and power house, which were expected to be salvaged and converted were demolished.
The entire site of the Sketchley Brook development incorporates Rugby Road park, businesses off Brookfield Road, the old Johnsons factory site and buildings, the Nelson Burgess site, Sketchley Brook, the water reclamation works, Jericho Farm and Logix Park.
According to recollections from members of the Hinckley District Past and Present Facebook page the building was once transport office and stables for Johnsons, later housing electric vehicles, before being taken over by a firm called Sugdens then by car dealer Dave Rock who has since moved to Atherstone.
