Regeneration plans unveiled for South Birmingham

October 20, 2011 by  

Extensive regeneration plans have been unveiled for Tyseley, a run-down area of South Birmingham, designed to create new shops, jobs, homes and road infrastructure.

The plans to regenerate Tyseley include the creation of a new residential area that will feature up to five new-build homes. There are also economic factors that make the plans for regeneration seem particularly attractive; including the construction of an Asda superstore that would provide much-needed jobs for the area.

The proposed development is to be called Signal Point and will not only come as a boost to local jobseekers but it will also buoy the local economy, with people in nearby businesses having the opportunity to provide goods and services to the new businesses and residents of Signal Point. For example, local print shops may be contacted to provide the new shops at the development with POS printing.

South Birmingham is an area of the UK that has seen several similar development plans put into action over recent years. Helical retail is the company who have partnered with developers Mucklow to make the changes happen. A spokesman for the organisation stated:

“This is a big deal for Tyseley and Birmingham,” added Mr Birch. “Tyseley does not have an identifiable centre and we hope this regeneration is really going to put it on the map.”

The planning application for Signal Point will be submitted at some time in November and the developers hope that this will be accepted so that work can start as soon as possible.
