TOY store Smyths wants to open a store on Gallagher Retail Park.

It is eyeing the former JJB store which down closed last year.

Smyths had previously applied to move into Arena Park, but planning rules scuppered the plan.

THE Jolly Colliers pub in Woodway Lane could be demolished and replaced with a house and flats.

Birmingham-based Better & Better Commercials Ltd said the former pub was of very little merit to the area and was fire damaged inside.

The company has applied to the city council to replace it with a four bedroom house and a block of 12 one-bedroom apartments.

A FORMER buiness centre on Bayley Lane in the city centre could be turned into student flats.

Plans have been drawn up for the Elizabethan grade II listed building known as Bayley House to be converted into accomodation for 18 students.
