Former pub with planning permission likely to pull in bidders
A former pub in Rowley Regis is coming up for sale at auction with planning permission already in place for redevelopment as homes.
Sandwell Council has approved two separate scenarios to redevelop the site into homes.
Colin Totney, land & development surveyor at Bond Wolfe, said: “We are expecting lots of interest from bidders in this property, which offers an ‘oven-ready’ opportunity to redevelop a site into valuable housing in an area where homes are much in demand.
“Builders and developers alike from across the country will be logging on to our live-streamed auction.”
The Former pub has planning permission for conversion and extension to create three three-bedroomed homes or alternatively to convert and extend the existing pub building to provide nine self-contained flats.
The property sits just off Dudley Road, besides its junction with Doulton Road, in a predominantly residential location about a mile and a half from Blackheath town centre.
Sandwell Council planners granted permission for the conversion of the pub and a two-storey extension to create the three homes in August. A previous plan for two-storey side extensions and single-storey rear extensions to create the nine flats was given outline permission in May 2021.
The former Cock Inn is among 158 lots due to appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which is due to start at 9.30 am on Thursday 27 October.
The auction will be live-streamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet.
