Derelict land in Bloxwich could be transformed into a development of more than a dozen homes, if plans are given the green light.

Developers Fastglobe Ltd are looking to build six houses and eight apartments on the former Royal Navy club site on Elmore Green Road, which is currently boarded up.

Plans to redevelop the site into apartments were previously approved in 2010 and 2014, however the schemes were never carried forward.

But it is hoped this current proposal will help regenerate the site and provide a boost to the area.

The properties will be made up of three three-bedroom houses and three two-bedroom houses with a further six one-bedroom flats and two two-bedroom apartments.

Agents LNS Partnership said: “The site is situated in a highly sustainable location, being approximately three minutes walking distance from Bloxwich Town Centre and close to local amenities.

Services

“The location of the site is ideally suited to the provision of higher density development since it has good access to services and public transport.

“Each of the six houses will be provided with its own dedicated car and cycle parking space, the eight flats will be provided with a communal car parking area and a covered communal cycle parking area.

“The proposed development provides new dwellings which will contribute to the identified housing need within the Black Country and is of appropriate density for its location close to the town centre of Bloxwich.

“The proposal makes suitable arrangements for access and off street parking in a manner that will not have any adverse effects on the neighbouring residential amenity.

“It also seeks to enhance the existing soft landscaping and boundary treatment. This promotes equality of safe access, movement and use of the site.

“The proposed scheme contributes to safeguarding and respecting the diverse character and appearance of the site and the area through its design, layout, construction and use.”
