Times Change : the home of motoring becomes a home from home
Longbridge, named after Lord Austin of Longbridge who founded the Austin Motor Company is being transformed by St Modwen into a vibrant community. This is a massive billion pound regeneration project covering 468 acres and involving a new town centre, new homes, parkland, community facilities and employment uses. The development aspires to create 10,000 new jobs through a diverse range of industries together with 2,000 new homes.
The approval of 19 new, individually designed homes at Lickey Road is a second phase of St Modwen Homes Park View development. Whilst representing only a very small part of the overall development, this incremental approach underpins the care and attention to detail that is being paid to ful fill this grand vision and also the determination and efficiency of St Modwen. These 19 new homes were granted planning permission just before Christmas and construction will start on site at the end of January.
