PLANS for 56 apartments in Longbridge Town Centre have been given the go ahead.
The L-shaped four-floor development has been put forward by St Modwen Homes for the corner of Cooper Way and Austin Way.
It will include a mix of 35 two-bedroom apartments and 21 one-bedroom flats, with every property having a balcony or terrace.
The scheme will also provide 28 car parking spaces and storage parking for 56 bicycles.
Ten per cent will be affordable housing, offered at a 20 per cent discount of the market sale values.
Dave Smith, managing director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “Housebuilding is at the very forefront of the economy – now more than ever, so we’re delighted to receive the unanimous committee decision from Birmingham City Council for our apartment scheme in Longbridge Town Centre.
“Not only is Longbridge one of St Modwen’s most successful urban regeneration projects, but it is also our home – so we’re thrilled to bring our signature contemporary style that has set us apart from the market and thoughtful approach to design, to the area.”
Birmingham City Council’s planning committee granted planning permission subject to conditions and a Section 106 agreement to pay for local amenities.
