Plans to build on former site of Shropshire Star HQ

A warehouse and offices could be built on the former site of a newspaper headquarters.

The Shropshire Star sold the land in Ketley, Telford, in 2022, with staff moving into Grosvenor House in the town.

In 2023 the old building and printers were demolished. Shropshire firm Morris & Co has applied to build on the site.

Its application also suggests 54 parking spaces and two disabled parking spaces.

Morris & Co said the replacement building would be suitable for a new or expanding business and use "roof-mounted photovoltaic cells" to help power the building.

This news was gathered by the Local Democracy Reporting Service which covers councils and other public service organisations.
