PART of a March factory will be demolished and replaced by housing if planners agree to the proposals by Davern Work Wear.

The company, already in the throes of developing land in Elliott Road, now wants to demolish part of a building described as "largely old and sub standard".

Fenland District Council's planners are now considering proposals for 14 homes on the site which the company says will be the final phase of its redevelopment.

The company's agents, JDP Architectural Consultants, said the brownfield site was formerly owned by Johnson Engineering Ltd. Over the years new homes have encroached on the factory site.

JDP says some of the proposed new homes are two-and-a-half storey units, but given that the warehouse to be demolished has a height of 8.25 metres this should not impose any greater obstruction on neighbours.

The application has been made in the name of the 'Trustees of the Davern Work Wear Ltd, retirement and death benefit scheme'.
