Demolition bid for food factory

A CLOSED Amble food factory could be knocked down.

Northumberland County Council is to apply for planning permission to demolish the former Northumberland Foods premises.

It comes after the authority accepted the surrender of the ground lease for the site from administrator Begbies Traynor.

The factory has been branded ‘not fit for purpose’ and demolition would take place as soon as possible if approval was granted, followed by promoting the development of the site.
