Demolition work to begin on eyesore site

Dudley Council has confirmed demolition work is expected to start at an eyesore site in Colley Gate from next month.

The dilapidated Cradley buildings, which once housed disused shops, were recently acquired by the local authority following the serving of a Compulsory Purchase Order.

The land is earmarked for eight new homes.

Fencing and preparation works are expected to start from 19 February, with work to remove the structure planned from 26 February.

It is estimated that the demolition work will take around five to six weeks with the site likely to be cleared by late March.

Councillor Paul Bradley, deputy leader of the council, said:

“We are really pleased to be able to start the works to bring down the derelict buildings in Colley Gate.

“We have always insisted on a brownfield-first policy when it comes to developments in our borough, to protect our green belt, and it is vital sites like this one are brought back into use.

“I would like to thank the local community for getting behind us on this one, we can now look forward to seeing the site cleared and the future redevelopment of the site.”
