A strategic parcel of grazing land located in the growing commuter town of Rubery,
in the district of Bromsgrove. This lush pasture land is suitable for a variety of
amenity and recreational uses and is close to dense residential housing. This may
accodingly be considered to give the land some considerable ‘hope-value’ for future
development. Furthermore, the land is close to an excellent infrastructure of strong
transport links and amenities that could support future development.
The local area has experienced considerable development in recent years, both
residentially and commercially including the Birmingham Great Park and the ongoing
£1 billion redevelopment of nearby Longbridge. These developments will boost the
local economy greatly, potentially increasing the need for housing in the area.
The district already has a significant need for affordable housing and it is reported
that the amount of brownfield land available for development is insufficient to
meet the district’s housing targets. This means that Greenfield sites may need to
be released. Neighbouring Redditch Borough is unable to accommodate all of its
housing needs. It is therefore necessary for some of this to be located in Bromsgrove.
All of the options put forward for Bromsgrove are located within the Green Belt.
The site is available freehold as a whole
