New development leads to improved community

Solihull development to inject over £1.3 million into local services.

Building company Bellway is to deliver funding of more than £1.3 million for local services as part of its Tidbury Heights development in Tidbury Green.

The money is being provided by the housebuilder through the planning agreement for the 231-home development off Dickens Heath Road, where construction work began in 2016.

Tidbury Heights comprises a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties, with 92 of the homes being provided as affordable housing for rent or shared ownership.

The financial contributions being made by Bellway include £802,479 to provide additional secondary school places and £257,397 for additional places at Tidbury Green Primary School.

Other contributions include £228,000 for transport, some of which will be used to extend the S3 bus service to Wythall railway station, and £16,442 for Dickens Heath and Cheswick Green surgeries.

Since 2017 a new community has started to form at Bellway’s Tidbury Heights development, where work will be completed this year.

Marie Richards, Sales Director for Bellway West Midlands, said: “As a local housebuilder, we pride ourselves on building not just homes but communities. The contributions we are providing as part of the planning agreement for Tidbury Heights will help to improve a range of services for local people, from education and healthcare to transport.

“Tidbury Heights offers a range of homes to cater for buyers at all stages of the property ladder, especially with the help of schemes such as Bellway’s Part Exchange.”

Under the Part Exchange scheme, the housebuilder makes an offer on the customer’s existing home based on an independent valuation of the property.

If the offer is accepted, the buyer is then able to move into their new home without having to worry about finding a buyer for their old property.

A selection of four and five-bedroom houses are currently available at Tidbury Heights, with prices starting from £433,495. For more information, visit
