Shops and apartments plans withdrawn

By Jordan Reynolds | Wednesbury | News | Published:

Plans to transform a disused piece of land that has become a magnet for fly-tipping into shops and apartments have been withdrawn.

Sandwell Council

Plans had gone in to Sandwell Council for the construction of four retail units and eight apartments above them, with associated parking, on Leabrook Road, Wednesbury.

But the applicant withdrew the application this week.

In a letter on the application, the agent says the plans were withdrawn before it went to a committee, so the applicant can address the officer's concerns.

Applicant Jagpal Singh had said the site has lain empty for more than 20 years and that the development would breathe new life into the area.

Permission was previously granted for the land, situated next to a convenience store, to be converted into a car park but that was never built.
