Shape Solihull’s Future - Consultation Ends Feb 17th

The current 15 year 'Solihull Local Plan', was adopted in December 2013. A legal challenge meant the Council was forced to look again at it, especially the plans for new housing locations across the Borough.

local plan

Housing, HS2, JLR and the Town Centre

Many areas will see large housing developments in the coming years, and the plan earmarks the proposed locations.

The first HS2 station outside of London is to be built in Solihull's Green Belt next to the M42 and opposite the NEC, opening in 2026.  Other Green Belt has been earmarked for future expansion by JLR and its suppliers.

In 2016 the Council publicised proposals for the Town Centre which would increase housing and leisure facilities, and reduce car parking spaces.

Have your Say

All those topics are controversial, at least to some residents, so the Council approved a draft Local Plan in November. You can now submit your views on the revised policies and proposed locations for housing and employment land. (This is in addition to those in the existing Plan).
