PLANS to flatten a former pub in Cradley Heath to make way for homes have been submitted to Sandwell Council.

The Old Furnace on Waterfall Lane would be demolished and five houses built in its place, is plans get the go-ahead.

The derelict pub sold at auction for £210k back in March 2019.

It smashed its guide price of £145k, attracting enthusiastic bidding at the Villa Park auction.

The proposal, from Mohammed Parvez, is for outline planning permission to build four three-bed semi-detached houses and one three-bed detached house.

The proposal states: "The scale of the proposed development has been carefully considered throughout the design process."
