Plans unveiled for major Birmingham housing development

Newly revealed plans describe an initiative to revive a site that was formerly used by a sports centre and college.

The joint venture between Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital has moved forward with the submission of a planning proposal to construct hundreds of homes on the parcel of land located near Birmingham’s Haden Way and Belgrave Middleway.

Comprising 11.5 acres, the proposed site was once the address of Joseph Chamberlain College, as well as the Birmingham Sports Centre, but the area has been disused now for more than two decades. If awarded approval by city planners, the large-scale project would entail the construction of several apartment blocks and terraces of varying heights.

Accommodation planned includes 107 apartments with two bedrooms, 219 with one bedroom and 62 with three bedrooms, as well as houses with four bedrooms each for families. Parking spaces will be provided for future residents, including places for cars, motorcycles and bicycles, along with green spaces for use by the community.

A report in support of the housing estate planning application stated:

“The vision for Belgrave Middleway is to create a new neighbourhood in a sustainable location in Birmingham, with high-quality amenity space and high-quality architecture.”

Professional architects in Chester, Birmingham and other major UK cities always consider the location of residential developments when drawing up plans. Designs must not only factor in the needs of future residents, but the impact structures can potentially have on those who already work and dwell in the local area.
