Blythe Valley Park & Fore Business Park | M42 Corridor | Mixed-Use | U/C

Developers launch scheme to build 750 homes and 1m sq ft of offices
5th April 2016
Developers launch scheme to build 750 homes and 1m sq ft of offices
A SCHEME to deliver a hotel, 750 homes and up to 1m sq ft of commercial space is to go before planners in what would be a massive expansion of Blythe Valley Park.

The park already has 700,000 sq ft of space across 13 buildings and developers are now ready to move forward with plans for its undeveloped western area.

It would see 750 homes, a 200-bedroom hotel and a housing with care facility of up to 250 units, plus leisure and leisure and other uses of up to 40,000 sq ft.

There would be up to 1m sq ft of commercial space, which would be predominantly offices, although this would be reduced if the hotel and care unit were not delivered.

Read next: Birmingham office market smashes take-up record

A hybrid planning application has been submitted to Solihull Council by site owners IM Properties.

It bought the 260-acre park out of receivership for around £125m at the end of 2014. The existing 135-acre country park which bounds the site also formed part of the purchase.

About time too! The land along there isn't farmed in any way at all. I'd have thought the planned service station would go in there too but it's further down the M42 apparently.

Why would the amount of commercial space be reduced if the care unit and hotel aren`t built? Surely that would free up more land for additional development?

Yeah, probably right Guilbert.

I certainly wouldn`t consider a care unit as commercial though, but I`d go with what you said.

Something quite Dutch about the first image. I hope we get some diverse architects within a more visionary steering group build something a bit more interesting than the usual Wimpey crap that the UK seems to be specialist in producing.

That's right, cross the road at Notcutts, walk a little down Stratford Road and you can cut into the Park as you can see in the pic I just knocked up. The red dot is where Java Lounge is.

I'm painfully aware Ell. It was done for ref for those who don't know the area all that well. To the right of the car park there bottom right, Notcutts is approx 100 yards away. Maybe even less https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.38...7i13312!8i6656 (Notcutts on left, building on right)

You'll still have to walk along Stratford Road to be able to cut into the Park (if they don't drive).

It's an image knocked up in 2 minutes on Paint showing the close vicinity of everything, bloody 'ell Ell

I thought the new builds were all going to be in the area starting at the bottom of the pic - yes Ell we are aware the stores are off the pic it was done for ref.

haha Reiss

What's the closest train station from the BV Park Ell? Dorridge or Widney Manor?

MSP, I believe the rear of the above photo is Phase 2 of it all. Signs are all over the Stratford Road advertising for it http://www.foresolihull.co.uk/

I'd say Earlswood and Shirley are as close as Dorridge and Widney Manor - there's certainly not much in it.

A metro line along the Stratford Road up to a Park and Ride at Blythe Valley would be a very worthwhile invested and get very well used IMO, as non of the stations mentioned are walking distance. Taking Buses of the A34 and replacing with a metro line would not only be better for commuters to Blythe valley and Shirley (with its many industrial and business parks) but also for City commuters heading the other way. It would also help with much needed regeneration of areas such as Sparkhill, Sparkbrook and Highgate/ South Digbeth and provide a pleasant arterial route from the city to the M42 and M40 motorways.
