'Eyesore' Halesowen School Sold After A Decade

A derelict Halesowen school, which has become a vandal-hit eyesore, is finally being sold for house building almost 10 years after closing down.

Holt Farm Primary School has suffered a decade of neglect – despite many calls for action – and in 2014 most of the building was destroyed in an arson attack.

Halesowen North councillor Karen Shakespeare, revealed this week a sale has now been agreed and it is hoped contracts will be exchanged within eight to 10 weeks.

The Holt Road site, which is almost two acres, was on the market for £1.35 million. The actual sale price and the company behind the purchase remains under wraps.
