Following a successful road safety audit the new pedestrian crossing at Chelmund's Cross will be operational from the morning of Tuesday 22 April. At the same time access to the underpass will be closed.
Bellway plans to start work on 40 one and two-bedroom apartments in Fillingham Close, Chelmund's Cross, in May and the first tenants could move in by May 2015. The scheme will address the need for smaller properties for over 55s in the area.
As part of the continuing works on Chelmund's Cross Village Centre, Dawnus Construction are operating night closures on the Chester Road. This is so that the carriageway can be resurfaced.
Work has begun to fit out a new health facility in north Solihull which will provide a number of key primary care and specialist health services for local people. NHS Property Services is managing the programme of works to the new health facility, which is based above the new Bishop Wilson Church of England Primary School in Chelmund's Cross Village Centre.
From Monday, 20th January to Wednesday, 28th May 2014 bus numbers 70 and 59A will no longer run along Yorkminster Drive and Dunster Road. This is a temporary arrangement whilst the new traffic light junction from Dunster Road onto the Chester Road is completed.
Bellway Homes are proposing to build a mix of 40 1 and 2 bedroom apartments on land off Fillingham Close in Chelmsley Wood. The apartments will be particularly targeted for older residents who wish to downsize and will be available for rent through Optima Housing.
