Planning applications for 170 homes on Blythe Valley Park to be handed to Solihull Council

PLANS to build 170 new homes in Blythe Valley Business Park are set to be handed to Solihull council later this month.

IM Properties (IMP) has teamed up with Bloor Homes for the development near Junction 4 of the M42.

A reserved matters application is set to be submitted in mid-April detailing plans for the development, which represents the first phase of 750 homes granted outline consent last year.

Solihull planning chiefs gave IM Properties permission to build 750 homes, a 250-unit care facility and a 200-bed hotel on land around Blythe Valley Business Park.

The previous application approved was in a hybrid form, meaning it had sought full planning permission for specified parts of the plans including the new road access, internal road, landscaping and drainage features, but only outline permission for other parts of the scheme.

The new application is for full planning permission for 170 of those houses.

Bloor Homes said there will be a mix of one, two three and four-bedroom homes with open spaces and play opportunities for children.

Jonathan Dyke from IMP’s strategic land division, IM Land said: “We have worked long and hard on our vision to deliver much needed homes in Solihull and we believe Bloor Homes will create the right mix and quality of homes required for younger families, first time buyers and those people wanting to be located near to their work or as part of a thriving new sustainable community.”

Paul Degg, regional managing director of Bloor Homes Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be working with IM Properties to deliver the first phase of homes at this ground-breaking mixed-use development.

“The vision for Blythe Valley Park is to create a high quality and attractive new neighbourhood with a village character and a strong sense of community, and we are confident our proposals will achieve this.

“We will be submitting a reserved matters application in the very near future and, subject to approval, we plan to start construction work on the first homes in the autumn.”
