The three-storey building, on the junction of Stourbridge Road and Dudley Road in Lye, is currently occupied by an off-licence and restaurant.

Planners have granted permission for a change of use to a Mandir (place of worship) which will include 11 prayer rooms.

The Mandir will be open from 10am to 4pm, visitor numbers are expected to be between two and ten people on Monday to Saturday with up to 40 people on Sundays.

In addition, a historic pub in Brierley Hill is to get a new lease of life after planners granted permission for its conversion into four new apartments The Dog and Lamp Post on Dudley Road closed in 2021 after 151 years operating as a public house.

Approval has now been given for the building to be converted into three apartments with the construction of a further apartment at the rear of the premises.
