PLANS to build 137 homes as part of the next phase of the North Solihull’s regeneration project has been given the green light.
Planning applications for the new homes were approved by Solihull Council following a lengthy consultation process by the North Solihull Partnership, including three public meetings.
Developer Bellway will build 26 one, two and three-bedroom houses and apartments on two plots of land at Castle Oak in Overgreen Drive, Kingshurst.
The land is vacant after buildings which previously occupied the site were demolished and a total of 40 per cent of the new homes will be made available as affordable housing.
A further 38 homes will be built at Forest Oak in Birmingham Road and will include one, two, three and four-bedroom houses and apartments.
The Keepers Lodge buildings in Chelmsley Road will be demolished to make way for 46 new homes next to Bellway’s earlier development, Keepers Gate.
Keepers Lodge will include apartments, townhouses and family homes ranging in size from one to three-bedrooms.
The remaining 27 homes will be a mix of one to three-bedroom semi-detached and terraced homes, as well as apartments, at Montford Rise in Woodlands Highway.
Stephen Rose, Sales and Marketing Director said they are very pleased that these plans have been approved.
He added: “We feel that these 137 new homes across four sites will bring a real boost to the area and we hope the residents of North Solihull agree.”
