Plans to demolish a Lichfield pub have been given the green light.

Lichfield District Council approved the proposal to replace The Windmill on Grange Lane with 12 houses.

The original scheme has been revised with permission now granted for six three-bedroom houses and six two-bed apartments.

“The proposed layout of the terraced dwellings has been shaped to join the existing street scene of the neighbouring properties,” the developers said. “The proposed dwellings will have trees running parallel to them to the front of Grange Lane in order to create privacy for the residents of the proposed dwellings and greener views for the neighbouring residents.

“An existing set of steps to the south of the site will be retained, maintaining a route of pedestrian access from the site to Wheel Lane.”

Full details of the proposals can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.

    As a City councillor for Chadsmead ward,I am really pleased that,at long last, this has been finally approved. The residents’ of nearby homes will be able to see an improvement,rather than an empty shell,slowly falling apart.
