Birmingham City Council cabinet is being asked to approve plans to demolish a block of flats in West Heath.
Proposals to demolish the block of flats and shops on the corner of Houldey Road (numbers 1-9) and The Fordrough (66-92) will be considered by councillors on 26th January.
Plans for redevelopment of the site will be presented at a later date, but it is likely to be used for new housing.
Councillor Tahir Ali, cabinet member for Development, Transport and the Economy, said: “The block in question is poor quality, inefficient, and no longer meets the needs of Birmingham residents in the 21st century.
“We do not take decisions to demolish homes lightly, given the existing housing gap. However, demolishing this block will remove an eyesore as well as helping reduce the opportunity for criminal and anti-social behaviour at this site, thus improving the local environment. We have already consulted with local residents who fully support these proposals.
“Crucially, we want to give this site a new lease of life with high quality housing better suited to the needs of local families – proposals for which will be put forward in due course.”
