Solihull housebuilding project ends

Huge housing regeneration project draws to a close in North Solihull.

A massive regeneration scheme which has seen the construction of hundreds of new homes in North Solihull is now complete.

Housebuilder Bellway has built more than 1,600 homes over 36 sites over the past decade, playing a key role in the transformation of the area. More than half of the new homes built have been designated as affordable housing for local people.

Building work at two final developments – Alderbrook, off Arran Way, and Lakeview, off Cooks Lane – is now complete, with all homes now reserved and the final residents set to move in.

The new homes form part of a scheme by North Solihull Partnership which has also seen the creation of new primary schools, village centres and community facilities in the area.

Marie Richards, Sales Director for Bellway West Midlands, said: “Our developments in North Solihull have been one of the biggest regeneration schemes we have been involved in and we are really proud to have played such a significant role in improving the lives of so many local residents, providing a range of high-quality housing that people could afford.

“The success we’ve seen as part of this project is testament to the fact that we worked hard to plan new homes which would meet the needs of local people.

“The availability of the Government’s Help to Buy scheme was also an important factor as it allowed buyers to purchase their new-build home with a five per cent deposit, 75 per cent mortgage and a 20 per cent equity loan. With the help of the scheme, it was fantastic to see so many buyers step on or up the property ladder.

“It is incredibly satisfying to have completed building work here, and it has been great to watch these final developments take shape and transform into thriving new communities.”

Although the new homes in North Solihull are all now reserved, Bellway is building a range of homes across the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire.
