Plans for Kingshurst village centre to go on show this week

Sarah Mason 4th Sep, 2017

PLANS to demolish the Parade in Kingshurst village centre and replace it with modern shops, community buildings and new houses are set to go on show on Friday.

At the beginning of the year Solihull Council asked the local community, businesses and other stakeholders for views on the future of the area.

The most popular option was to demolish the Parade and replace the buildings with modern shops, community buildings and new houses.

Based on this feedback a draft masterplan has been produced that proposes new shops, medical and community facilities to the north of the park.

The plans will be on display at two drop-in sessions at Kingshurst Library on September 7 from 2pm until 6pm and on September 15 from 2pm until 5pm.

Coun Ian Courts, Deputy Leader and cabinet member for managed growth, said: “The Kingshurst Draft Masterplan contains some exciting proposals.

“We now need to hear what local people think about them.

“Nothing is set in stone and we may not be able to deliver some of the masterplan aspirations, but it is important that local people and businesses help us create a vison for the new Kingshurst.

“Following the successful schemes at Chelmund’s Cross and Smith’s Wood, I am confident if we can work with the local community and businesses, we can create a vibrant commercial centre, with public facilities that meet local peoples’ needs and improve the local area for everyone.”
