Help us save the Seven Storey - Urgent appeal


The future of Chance Glass is under threat. A planning application is open for a skip hire business to operate on the premises for a duration of 11 years. The noise, vibration and lorries that thunder by this fragile grade two listed building can no longer continue.

This video here shows the scale of the noise.

Please support the glass works and spend a little time to send a note of opposition to Sandwell Council. You will need to sign up to do this, but it only takes two ticks! The deadline is 12th July 2016.

Here’s the link and the info you will need to oppose the planning application:
