An interesting report to Solihull Cabinet this evening related to Solihull Town Centre and the Master Plan we are looking at; a public consultation will be launched next week (which I will post when the survey is launched).
The Solihull Town Centre Masterplan aims to provide a blueprint for future investment and development which maximises the opportunities for Solihull, capitalises on its
existing assets, and sets out a clear vision for Solihull 2036; as a vibrant, sustainable, aspirational and diverse 21st century town. Solihull is already a successful and popular town, and has consistently been named as one of the best places to live within the United Kingdom. With its excellent shopping, cultural facilities, employment opportunities with about 15,000 jobs currently and attractive setting, Solihull has a lot to offer to residents, businesses and visitors.
