Barwood is working in collaboration with St Philips to secure planning permission for up to 2,560 dwellings, a local centre and a 3-form entry first school for the cross boundary allocation within the adopted Bromsgrove District Plan and Borough of Redditch Local Plan no 4. The site extends to 136.03Ha (336.1 acres) and is located on the western edge of Redditch, approximately 3km west of the town centre. Most of the site lies within the administrative boundary of Bromsgrove District, with approximately 1.3Ha of land located within Redditch Borough.
The application provides 69.22ha of residential development delivering up to 2,560 dwellings (40% affordable housing) as well as a mixed use local centre comprising retail, health and community uses, a three form entry (3FE) first school which is located on a site of up to 2.8 ha and nearly 50ha of public open space to include informal and formal open space, existing and proposed structural planting, drainage and play.
A hybrid planning application has been approved by both Local Authorities subject to the completion of the S106 which is now at an advanced stage.
