183 new homes set to be built in Longbridge

We’re pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted for St. Modwen Homes to build 183 new homes in Longbridge.

The site, which will be called  St. Modwen Homes at West Works, was previously home to one of Europe’s largest car plants.

It’s now set to become a desirable mixed-use development with beautiful green spaces, and sustainable transport links, all in proximity to a variety of amenities in Longbridge Town Centre.

The first residential phase of the development will include a range of 1, 2, 3, and 4-bed houses and apartments, including 58 affordable homes, alongside public open spaces, parking, and landscaping.

As part of the ongoing commitment to local nature and the environment, West Works has seen an extensive tree-planting programme take place. Over 2,700 new plants will also be added the central boulevard to create a thriving, green environment.

A nature trail and art installation are also part of the development along a 1.5km walking and cycling route. Scannable QR codes and sculptures will be placed along the trail, allowing residents and visitors to scan and find out more about the local area and wildlife.

Longbridge has seen an incredible transformation over recent years, and the previously derelict site will also be transformed into the high-quality Longbridge Business Park.

The Park will see world-leading veterinary care group, IVC-Evidensia, opening its brand-new veterinary referral hospital, Blaise, to the public later this year. This specialist-led referral pet hospital will offer state-of-the-art equipment and create over 100 new jobs. In addition, the development of Waters Corporation’s industry-leading precision engineering centre has started.

Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “We’re very pleased to have received planning permission from Birmingham City Council for St. Modwen Homes at West Works.

“Longbridge is an area that has already undergone huge change and development, and we’re excited to build on this transformative work by delivering high quality homes, attractive public spaces and thriving communities.”
