Plans have been submitted to build 30 new homes on the site of the former Ross House medical facility in Northfield.
SevenHomes, the regional housebuilder by SevenCapital Group, acquired the 2.4-acre brownfield site in August last year from the NHS. Previously classed as surplus land, the sale means the land can now be redeveloped and brought back to life whilst capital raised will be injected back into NHS services.
Located off Sheldon Road, the new development – The Crescent, will feature a range of two, three and four-bedroom family homes in terrace, detached and townhouse styles, with a gross development value (GDV) of £7.5 million.
The Crescent benefits from good road and rail connectivity into Birmingham, with close proximity to the M5 / M42 motorway links. A plethora of popular amenities are also accessible nearby, including the multi-million-pound retail facilities in Longbridge, green spaces of Cofton Park and the popular Lickey Hills Country Park.
Jonathan Richards, managing director at SevenHomes commented: “Having sat disused for some time as surplus land, this site can now be revived and used to build a small community of modern, family homes which will be ideally located near to key medical facilities, amenities and transport networks.
“Equally it means capital from the sale will be put to good use where it’s needed within the NHS, which following this year is more important than ever.
“I’m really pleased to have been able to submit plans so soon after acquiring the land and look forward to them being approved and working with the team at SevenHomes to turn plans into reality.”
