IM Properties hopes to deliver sustainable new community in Solihull
Locally based developer, IM Properties, which also owns Mell Square Shopping Centre, is hoping to get the green light on what will be Solihull’s most ambitious, sustainable new housing scheme in recent years.
The proposal for Blythe Valley Park, situated at junction 4 of the M42, has been submitted for approval to Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and is for up to 750 high quality homes. It is part of IM Properties’ wider vision to create a healthy and desirable environment, which is an exciting place to live, work and relax.
The planning application also includes provision for a 200-bedroom hotel and a housing with care facility of up to 250 units, leisure and other uses of up to 40,000 sq ft, plus an additional 1 m sq feet of commercial space.
Lewis Payne, IM Properties’ development director said: “We have taken considerable time and pride in putting this application together including extensive public engagement. We believe it is a considered and thoughtfully planned scheme, which makes the most of Blythe Valley Park and its largely undiscovered Country Park which will be extended to surround the whole scheme.
“Clearly our proposal is in the hands of the Council’s planning department, however we hope it will be positively received by Solihull and go on to provide much needed housing for younger families and first time buyers who want to find a home locally.”
Warwickshire based IM Properties, which bought the 260-acre park for around £125m at the end of 2014, has a strong presence in the region and is one of UK’s most successful privately owned property companies, with an investment and development portfolio of circa £900 million across the UK, Europe and USA.
