A derelict pub which was gutted by three fires in the space of six weeks could now be bulldozed to make way for a luxury town house development, it was revealed today.

The Severn Apprentice closed in May 2009 but was later hit by three separate blazes at the end of the year.

But now the building, which has been described as an eyesore and has been boarded up for months, could be transformed under plans to demolish the pub and create 10 two and three storey town houses and two apartments.

Proposals have been submitted to Shropshire Council by Sherston Property Ltd, based in Wyle Cop. A design and access statement by agents AB Consulting, says the development would breathe new life into the dilapidated site in Coton Hill, Shrewsbury.

It says: "The existing public house is derelict and has suffered extensive vandalism and fire damage. The redevelopment presents an opportunity."
