Homes plan for former Willenhall schools

Two former school sites in Willenhall are poised to be sold and could be transformed into housing developments, new plans reveal.

Lakeside Junior School and Clothier Street Junior Schools have been demolished and the sites are to be sold by Walsall Council to fund other education projects.

It has now emerged that an undisclosed proposed buyer has been lined up and wants to submit a bid to the Homes and Communities Agency for grant funding to build affordable homes.

Officers say it would help address the known need for housing in the borough.
