Village Centres

Chelmund’s Cross Village Centre is the largest of the planned new North Solihull village centres. A total of almost £22m has been invested so far. The £10m Bishop Wilson Primary School was completed and opened to pupils in July 2014. The school also incorporates the new St. Andrew’s Church. There is an Enterprise Centre providing office space for small and new start-up businesses alongside new community facilities. Major road improvements have been carried out on the Chester Road with a new junction and public realm being created. Three Trees Baptist Centre has also undergone major refurbishment.

A brand new health centre opened to the public in November 2015. The health centre incorporates a doctors practice, a dental practice and a pharmacy.

New retail and office accommodation is also planned to be built next to the Enterprise Centre.

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

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, 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 has just been completed which will meet the needs of vulnerable people. It is also planned to build a new health centre next to the school.
