Housing plan for factory blaze site

First published in News

A DISUSED Cradley Heath factory ravaged by fire last week is being pulled down to make way for possible housing.

It is believed the blaze at the Rainbow Upholstery factory was started accidentally as a result of work being carried out to demolish the building.

The company relocated to Rowley Regis in March because of the poor condition of the premises.

Rainbow director Paul Round submitted a planning application to Sandwell Council last month for permission to build seven two-bedroom homes.

He is also asking for change of use of two houses from factory offices back to dwelllings at the site in Compton Road.
