A planning application has been submitted for four large business units on the site of the former West Works at Longbridge.
The Regional Investment Site on Bristol Road South was formerly used as a car park for the town centre and Bournville College while the town centre car parks were built.
Since the closure of MG Rover in 2005, developers St Modwen have brought homes, retail, leisure, offices, a ‘technology park’ and retirement village to the site.
In a bid to boost employment, developers have now submitted an application for planning permission for four class B1 (business) and / or class B2 (‘clean’ industrial) units and associated parking, utilities, drainage and access.
The long term vision for the rest of the West Works site will see the ‘business park’ expand further, alongside more new homes.
The full application and supporting documents can be viewed on Birmingham City Council’s website. Search for application number 2018/02549/PA Comments can be made until Thursday 10th May 2018.
