NEW homes could be built on a former trading estate in Halesowen, under plans lodged by a Birmingham-based developer.

An application has been submitted to Dudley Council for 11 homes on the former Malt Mill Lane Industrial Estate in Malt Mill Lane.

Plans feature eight three-bedroom semi-detached homes and three three-bedroom terraces with two off-street parking spaces for each home.

The site covers 0.24 hectares and is L-shaped in form. The properties would have loft bedrooms.

The development would form a cul-de-sac and would provide much-needed homes on a brownfield site, according to the developer S C Cradley Ltd's design and access statement.

It states: "The existing use for the site is industrial, although the site appears to have remained derelict and disused for some years.

"The proposal use would be for eleven number C3 dwellings for residential use and would deliver a high-quality development to suit needs of the community and much sought after modern living standards.

"The proposal is for a modest size development and we believe the site is capable of accommodating this scale of development without detriment to the character of the buildings and its surroundings."

It also adds: "This application seeks to redevelop a former industrial estate site off Malt Mill Lane, Halesowen for residential purposes to provide much needed eleven family homes for the borough.

"This proposal would deliver the following: an attractive scheme with a welcoming entrance from Malt Mill Lane; a range of 2 1/2 storied three bedroomed dwellings to suit local families; each property would have a decent sized private amenity area and sufficient off street parking places to park; a safe vehicular and pedestrian access would be created; an appropriate density of development is provided to respect the character of the area.

"The properties are set around an attractive cul-de-sac formation with landscaping in the form of semi mature trees and shrubs proposed."

The planning application has been submitted by Plans Associates, on the instruction of Birmingham-based building firm S C Cradley Ltd.

The design and access statement was produced by Leicester Architecture Designs Ltd (LAD).

Dudley Council previously granted planning permission for residential development on this site in 1997 but the development did not go ahead.
