Shirley housebuilder releases first homes early in response to huge demand

The first homes have been released for sale at a new housing development in Shirley near Solihull – after going on sale early due to high demand.

Bellway brought forward the release of its first phase of properties at Lucas Green, off Dog Kennel Lane, after being inundated with enquiries from prospective purchasers.

Information on the first homes for sale can be found at Bellway’s nearby Tidbury Heights development in Tidbury on Friday 16 April.

A selection of two-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom houses are available, with prices starting from £239,500.

More homes will be released onto the market in the autumn when a sales office will open at the development.

Bellway is building 76 homes on the site, which was previously occupied by Lucas Engineering and is part of a wider proposed scheme of 260 homes.

Marie Richards, Sales Director for Bellway West Midlands, said: “Such has been the level of interest from buyers in the Solihull area that we have taken the unusual step of releasing the first homes for sale at Lucas Green several months ahead of schedule.

“We have received a huge number of enquiries since announcing our plans for the site. The site is in a highly sought-after location just a 10-minute drive from Solihull town centre and has good road and rail links to Birmingham. It is therefore appealing to a broad mix of buyers, from young professionals and first-time buyers to growing families and commuters.

“With construction work underway, we are looking forward to welcoming visitors to Lucas Green in the autumn. In the meantime, anyone interested in the new homes at the development can find out more by contacting our sales team at Tidbury Heights.”

The homes at Lucas Green will include two-bedroom apartments as well as three, four and five-bedroom houses.
