Cavendish House demolition step closer ready for multi-million pound transformation
Long-awaited plans to demolish an eyesore office block in Dudley as part of a multi-million pound development have been lodged.
The move to redevelop the site of Cavendish House has been welcomed by community leaders.
The planning application is to knock down the former office block in Trindle Road and replace it with a mix of retail, leisure and residential properties.
The rundown block overlooks the Duncan Edwards Way bypass – one of the major gateways into Dudley.
Councillor Alan Lunt, strategic director for place at Dudley Council, said: “This is a very hugely significant step in our ongoing work to create more jobs and investment in Dudley.
“The planning application will have to go through the normal process but if approved will be one of the biggest investments in Dudley in decades bringing millions of pounds of investment, jobs and much more to the town.
"Not only that the development would be part of a wider masterplan of improvements including the multi-million pound Midland Metro extension to Brierley Hill and a revamped bus station in Dudley which will revolutionise public transport for the area.”
The applicant is Avenbury Properties.
