New housing development in Birmingham reaches key milestone

Half of the homes have now been constructed at a new housing development which is transforming a former industrial site in Kings Norton.

Bellway West Midlands is building a selection of two, three and four-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments at The Oaks, off Parsons Hill, on a brownfield site that had been vacant for many years.

Once complete, the development will consist of 171 new homes, with 17 of these provided as affordable housing for local people.

Construction work started at the site in July 2018 and is now due to be complete in 2022. More than 50 of the private homes have already been sold and 60 homes are now occupied.

A four-bedroom Magnolia showhome is available for house-hunters to visit at The Oaks on an appointment-only basis.

Sales Director for Bellway West Midlands, Marie Richards, said: “The Oaks is proving to be a draw for not only local people but also those from further afield who are looking to secure a new home closer to the city centre.

“With the A441 just down the road and Kings Norton train station around a mile-and-a-half away, we’re seeing many commuters and professionals move here, including doctors, nurses and teachers moving closer to some of the top-rated schools in the Kings Norton area.

“The homes at The Oaks are bordered by woodland yet close to Kings Norton’s high street shops, so day-to-day essentials are just a short walk away.

“Due to the high levels of interest we have received for The Oaks, we have made the decision to release another selection of homes. This will help even more house-hunters secure their dream property at this sought-after development.”

The remaining homes at The Oaks will be housetypes from Bellway’s Artisan Collection. The collection, which first launched in 2019, features 44 elite designs of varying sizes and layouts. Prices for the homes start at £241,895.
