30 new Dudley home set for approval

Nearly 30 new homes are set to be built on a former warehouse site after planners recommended the scheme be approved.

Hadlington Brothers Limited want permission to build 27 houses on disused land off Marine Crescent, in Wordsley.

The site was formerly used as a tile warehouse.

But following its closure in 2007, the building was demolished and the land has remained vacant since then.

Under the scheme, two three-bedroom semi-detached and four two-bedroom semi-detached homes would be built.

There will also be seven three-bedroom detached and 14 four-bedroom detached properties constructed.

Most of the homes will have at least two driveway spaces with the four-bedroom houses having three spaces.

Two letters of objection have been received to the plans.

Residents are concerned the new homes will lead to a loss of light and privacy to neighbouring properties on Ensall Drive.

And they are worried it will lead to increased traffic on already busy roads.

The plans will be discussed at a meeting of Dudley Council's development control committee on Monday (30).

But in a report to the committee, planning officers say: "The development would integrate well with its surroundings.

"With an appropriate form of layout and design this provides the opportunity to revitalise and regenerate this part of the borough.

"The proposal respects the character and distinctiveness of the area making a positive contribution."

The meeting will be held at Dudley Council House, in Priory Road, starting at 6pm.

Residents are welcome to attend.
