Your say! Drop-in sessions on plans for new Kingshurst centre

Solihull Editorial 21st Sep, 2021   0

AN updated masterplan showing the proposed layout, design and makeup of the Kingshurst Village Centre redevelopment has been unveiled.

A major milestone for the scheme was cleared last December with approval of an outline planning application.

Since then work has continued to develop the detailed design through consultation with key stakeholders, including health sector and community partners.

Community responses to earlier consultation on the previous masterplan have also been used to refine this updated version.

The masterplan proposes a new village centre with a community and health centre along with new shops and 79 new family homes, the majority being social rented through Solihull Community Housing, all built to Lifetime Homes standards.

The new layout is designed to improve connections between Kingshurst Park, Kingshurst Primary School and St Barnabas Church.

Now local residents are being encouraged to come along to one of the public drop-in events where project officers will be displaying the masterplan, answering questions and gathering feedback at two sessions outside on The Parade:

Today, Tuesday, September 21, from 3pm to 6.30pm, and on Thursday, September 23, from 11.30am to 2.30pm

It is also possible view the updated masterplan and share feedback by visiting:

Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council, said: “A huge amount of work has gone into our updated masterplan which aims to respond to the specific community, health and housing needs of the area.

“Community feedback has been a vital part of developing this scheme from the early draft masterplan right the way through to informing our submission of a full planning application.

“This scheme is a once in a generation opportunity to create a high quality, community focussed centre at the heart of Kingshurst so it’s really important we get it right and deliver a new village centre that works for everyone.”
