A report relating to Blythe Valley Park (BVP) went to the Council’s Cabinet Member for Managed Growth at his decision session of 1 September. Essentially the report outlines the vision of BVP by its new owners, IM Properties. The report is outlined in para 3.3 which reads:
The specific vision is for BVP to become a mixed and sustainable community with exemplar development and supporting facilities. This recognises that many investors are seeking locations offering a wider range of facilities than originally envisaged for BVP. Inclusion of a residential element at BVP, as set out in the Local Plan, will help to support these ancillary and complementary uses. It will also contribute towards the Borough’s local housing need, whilst retaining the area’s intrinsic character of distinctive villages separated by open countryside. It will become a mixed and sustainable community and an aspirational place to live, work and play, amplified by exemplar standards of design, construction, and a distinctive sense of place. Improvements to local facilities, services and public transport will encourage more sustainable travel patterns and improve connectivity to surrounding communities.

Exciting times for this area and the thrust is to get value for the land and increase its capability to provide economic growth to Solihull whilst creating a sense of place for this new village.
