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.

There are currently a number of new developments under way.  Click the images and links below for more information.

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.

Works will commence on Lake View on 6th March 2017.  Bellway Homes will fence off the site and the footpaths will be closed from this date.  Alternative footpaths will be 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.


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.

Saxongate will be a collection of 57 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes which will be available to purchase through Bellway Homes.  There will also be a 51 unit Extra Care facility built on the site.

Galia Park will be a collection of 72 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes which will be available to purchase through Bellway Homes.
