Council buys former window factory site
Teignbridge Council has acquired the former manufacturing base and 0.9 acre site of a company which collapsed into administration earlier this year, as part of regeneration plans for the town.
The authority has bought the Launa Windows site on the town's Bradley Lane Industrial Estate in a step towards rejuvenating the area to increase jobs and homes.
Launa was bought out of administration by Britannia Windows in May, but shifted production to a state-of-the-art facility at its Clevedon headquarters.
Council leader Jeremy Christophers said the council now owned the larger part of the estate fronting the Totnes road.
