Octopus Real Estate, part of the Octopus Group and leading UK specialist real estate investor, has formally secured planning permission for a major care home development at Blythe Valley Park, Solihull. The planning consent, granted by Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, will see the 1.4-acre site transformed into an 80-bed care home including extensive landscaping.
The new home, to be built on land purchased from IM Properties, is part of Blythe Valley Park – an established 2 million square feet mixed use development, strategically located in the heart of the UK, surrounded by stunning parkland and leisure facilities. Blythe Valley Park is home to world class occupiers and amenities with over 122 acres of beautiful parkland.
Ashley Heath, Octopus Real Estate development team, said: “Having worked closely with IM Properties and the local planning authority we are delighted to receive approval for the 80-bed care home. The high-quality design is centrally located at Blythe Valley Park and sits alongside the new residential developments being constructed by Bloor and Crest Homes. The site also benefits from being opposite the proposed new neighbourhood centre and has extensive landscaping and facilities. Its proximity to the amenities of Solihull, in conjunction to the expanding facilities at Blythe Valley Park, will create the ideal environment for a care home ensuring comfortable surroundings for both residents and their families.
“The complete delivery of this development will require specialist knowledge at each stage of the project. Having already successfully sourced the land and secured planning permission we look forward to supporting the construction process and sharing further development milestones with the local community.”
