Bloor Homes have returned, taking their fight to the Government in a bid to get the go ahead for the proposal for 950 new homes, a new primary school, a multi-use community centre and 27 acres of public open space. The controversial planning application, which is not adopted in the Birmingham Local Plan, was refused last August following concerns over traffic and congestion.
Just days after the planning permission was refused, travellers moved onto the site and a legal process was launched to get them removed. This resulted in a violent disburse, after a man was mauled by a police dog and had to spend three days in Hospital recovering from his injuries. Then the buildings burnt down following a suspected arson attack and permission was granted to bulldoze it following the Fire Authority deeming it to be unsafe.
If you would like to have your say about the application, then visit the planning online website at https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/planningonline and search for application 2017/02724/PA
