New Housing Developments
There are lots of new homes for sale and rent being built by Bellway Homes. Since the project began in 2006, we have demolished 887 homes, including 5 tower blocks, which had become unsustainable. Over 1,300 new homes have now been built over 35 different sites, introducing choice into the housing market. More than half of the homes that are being built are for social rent and a large proportion of the remainder are available for low cost home ownership through equity share arrangements. Bellway are currently offering ‘Help to Buy’ 20% Equity Loan on all their open market sale homes.
Cooks Lane, Babb's Mill
Lake View will be a development of 52 dwellings within the River Cole valley just off Cooks Lane in Kingshurst. The development will also include balancing ponds, a wet land feature, natural play, landscaping and ecological enhancements.
The land transfer to Bellway Homes has now been completed and work will commence on site to provide permanent diversionary footpaths across the retained open space in Lark Meadow from 31st July 2017.
Works to construct a permanent access road off Cooks Lane at the position of the current bus stop will commence once the footpaths are in use and existing underground services have been diverted on Cooks Lane.
Bellway Homes fenced off the site on 6th March and alternative temporary footpaths have been clearly signposted - Cooks Lane Footpath Diversion
The bus stop will remain in its current location until vehicular access is required to the site. Discussion are in hand with West Midlands Travel to decide what might happen at this point.
Public consultation events were held towards the end of 2015 to showcase the plans for this development.
Windward Way Industrial Estate
Windward Way was a redundant industrial estate which has been demolished and will be replaced with 24 new affordable homes. Bellway have started the construction of these homes which will be managed by Family Optima.
In due course, the allocation process for these homes will be through Solihull Community Housing's Choice Based Lettings system.
Former Coleshill Heath and Fordbridge School Sites
Public consultation events showcasing plans to develop the sites recently occupied by Coleshill Heath and Fordbridge schools have taken place in North Solihull. Both of the old schools have been demolished and Bellway have started building the new homes.
