Plans to build 100 homes and new care home at Blythe Valley Park in Solihull

PLANS to build more than 100 homes and a new care home at Blythe Valley Park have been submitted to Solihull Council.

Octopus Healthcare has presented detailed plans for an 80-bed car home on one of several parcels of land earmarked for development.

And Bloor Homes has handed over plans to build 124 homes on another parcel of land nearby.

In March 2017, Solihull Council’s planning committee granted outline planning permission for up to 750 homes and 98,800 sq metres of employment space at the business park.

Applications for different sections of the land are being submitted by developers. The care home hopes to occupy a space known as Parcel L.

In documents handed to the council, Octopus Healthcare have outlined plans for a cafe in the care home entrance, which will be open to the public and residents.

They also state there will be a 32-space car park and a day room for residents where they will dine and activities will be hosted at the three-storey care home.

Planning company Ridge, who have been working with Octopus Healthcare on the application, said: “The proposals will assist in improving the choice of specialist accommodation and care for people in the locality, ensuring that they do not have to seek this elsewhere and potentially relocate from a familiar location that is close to their friends and family.

“The proposals will also add to the mix of development at Blythe Valley Park helping to create a mixed and balanced community.”

Bloor Homes is proposing to build properties between one and four bedrooms and 31 of these have been classed as affordable with associated parking.

The homes will be on Plot S at the business park if the application is successful.

The proposals are due to be discussed by Solihull planning chiefs in the coming months.
