Hundreds of homes planned for regeneration site
Plans for about 400 homes have been revealed for the second phase of the regeneration of Perry Barr following the end of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.The 30.3-acre site would also include a new secondary school for 1,260 pupils under plans revealed by Birmingham City Council.The area, between Holford Drive and Aldridge Road in Perry Barr, is adjacent to the site of the former Birmingham City University Campus.The buildings are already being demolished to make way for the residential element of Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Village, which will then be converted into approximately 1,400 new homes for the public post-games.The phase two site will only come forward for development after the games, as it will initially form part of the Athletes’ Village, accommodating a number of games-time facilities such as the athletes’ dining hall and other temporary facilities.The Doug Ellis Sports Centre and associated all-weather pitch will be retained following the games.An outline application is expected to be submitted to the authority’s planning department in the coming weeks ahead of a decision being made by the committee in the summer.The secondary school, proposed to the Department for Education, would open in 2021 if approved.
