Green light for 750 new homes as part of Solihull’s Blythe Valley development
Approval for the 750 home Blythe Valley Park development in Solihull is set to be granted subject to the provision of a section 106 funding agreement.
The housing scheme proposed by IM properties will be one of Solihull’s most impressive developments in recent years and will take up to a decade to complete. One of the largest property investors in the region, the property company also owns the Mell Square shopping centre in the town.
The scheme, if given the green light, will generate approximately £9.5 million pounds of additional investment with improvements to roads, public transport, schools and medical services. It will also boost the job market creating over 7000 jobs due to the proposed addition of one million square feet of commercial space, the provision of a new hotel, a 250-bedroom care home facility and 26,900sq ft. of commercial space for leisure use.
A spokesperson for IM properties said: "We have worked tirelessly on this application, including extensive public engagement and believe the new scheme will prove a tremendous boost to Solihull and provide much needed housing for younger families and first time buyers who want to find a home.
"The new community will have the benefit of a largely undiscovered 122-acre country park, which is to be enhanced and extended to surround the new scheme, creating a rich and diverse environment for all to thrive in and enjoy."
