Stirchley is in the line-up for a government funded project aimed at boosting the shopping and park areas. Birmingham City Council is managing projects to transform 10 major shopping areas in the outer city areas. The investment into areas such as Stirchley is worth over £2 billion and will take place over the next few years.
Stirchley is an area that is definitely gaining in popularity as a place to live. More and more independent shops and eateries are opening, and house prices are on the rise. This will only increase with the plans that have been unveiled as part of the ongoing investment and redevelopment of the area. The plans include:
- Wider pathways, new seating, and cycle stands on Pershore Road;
- Refurbishment to shop fronts and merging of smaller units to create new, larger premises for local businesses;
- Remodelling Stirchley Park for improved accessibility.
A lot of the planned development will take place in the immediate vicinity of the British Oak pub, where a new public square will be created.
It’s really exciting to see that the government are touting Stirchley as an up and coming area, with the 1.2km stretch of the Pershore Road being one of Birmimgham’s most bustling shopping centres.
We can also look forward to plans for new housing at Hazelwell Lane which no doubt signifies both an excellent investment opportunity or a great time to consider a move to what some are calling the new King’s Heath of Birmingham suburbs!
