Planning regeneration

For the regeneration project to be a success it is important to involve local people at every stage, so they can shape the future of their own neighbourhood.

So far we have planned 3 neighbourhoods Craig Croft, North Arran Way and Kingshurst and Babbs Mill and have developed a masterplan for each area.

Following our review of the strategic framework in 2009 the process for planning a neighbourhood and developing a spatial masterplan is now an approach based on clusters.

The Cole Valley Vision

In Spring 2010 Alan Baxter and John Thompson and Partners (JTP) were appointed  by the North Solihull Partnership to work with the local community to develop a new masterplan for the area, which is being referred to as the Cole Valley Vision.

Cole Valley Drop-in Exhibition

We held a public drop-in exhibition on Saturday, 27th October 2012 which was very well attended. We had almost 200 people come to see our masterplan for the Cole Valley, including sites proposed for new housing development, improvements to green space and proposed changes to the Chester Road and Moorend Avenue.  

Since the drop in exhibition we have been carrying out further technical and design work which will be concluded in Autumn 2014.

Smith's Wood

Spatial master planning is the process in which we bring forward the physical regeneration for an area. In the future a spatial master plan for the Lanchester Cluster will be developed alongside the community and stakeholders and everyone within the cluster will have an opportunity to shape the master plan for that area.

The Strategic Framework was agreed by Solihull Council in February 2005 after consultation with residents in 2004. It sets out how the Partnership intends to improve the physical and social infrastructure of North Solihull through major investment in schools, Village Centres, transport and green space.
