PLANS to bulldoze a derelict Cradley Heath pub and replace it with homes have been submitted to planners.

A developer wants to knock down the former Old Furnace pub on the corner of Waterfall Road and Grange Road and build three houses in its place.

If the outline application gets the go-ahead three four-bedroom detached homes will be built on the site.

A design and access statement notes that the site "is bounded by Sandwell MBC Taxi Licensing Offices with timber fence and trees behind and there are semi detached houses on the north boundary separated with a timber fence.

"Currently the site is occupied by the derelict public house and associated yard."

It goes on: "The proposed residential development has been carefully planned to provide layout which responds carefully to its setting."

it states that the proposal "Represents a high quality environment both visually and environmentally."

The application will be considered by Sandwell Council planners.

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.Halesowen News:
