A TEAM of surveyors has started a new website which aims to identify unused parcels of land and buildings ripe for development - and has shortlisted a selection of abandoned sites in Dudley.

New website Land Hero, which is run by Hagley based firm Land Attic, aims to identify sites with the view to then tracing the owners and kick-starting developments.

It has complied a shortlist of Dudley sites which have already been identified and is appealing for residents to upload suggestions.

These are listed at the end of the article and include properties on Tipton Road, Dudley (pictured above) and land on Bilston Street, Sedgley (pictured at top of article).

A spokesman for Land Attic said: "Almost everyone will have noticed a closed down pub, a disused factory, or a long forgotten car park in their town, and passed it thinking, "I wish someone would do something about that!

"Land Hero’s mission is to enlist the public in pinpointing potential development sites in their neighbourhoods, and to give people the opportunity to express their views on how these sites could best be used to benefit their communities."

Land Attic, which was launched in 2018, is a match making service for landowners, agents, developers and communities to bring forward sites for housing and employment so that disused property and land can be used for development.

Land Hero said building on green belt can take a long time to obtain planning permission and develop, and is often divisive.

The team said: "There are many brownfield or derelict sites out there that could be redeveloped in a much shorter timescale, which would satisfy our immediate need for housing and employment."
