A total of nearly £20m has been invested in the new village centre in Smith’s Wood. Work is now almost complete on this massive project which has resulted in a new high street and public realm at Burton’s Way. There are eight retail outlets, which include a bakery, hairdressers, a fish & chip shop, Quids In, Spar shop & Post Office, community facilities and office accommodation above occupied by Solihull Council. New houses have been built on the site of two demolished tower blocks.

The development has already seen the construction of a brand new primary school, Smith’s Wood Community Primary which opened to pupils in 2009 and also incorporates Smith’s Wood Parish Council and a gym.

A new Stonham Assisted Living scheme was opened in 2015 which meets the needs of vulnerable people. It is also planned to build a new health centre next to the school.

This project has been part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
