Work starts on multi-million pound development in Selly Oak

A leading luxury house builder has broken ground on the former Selly Oak hospital site to make way for the first phase of the development that kicks off the £100 million regeneration of the area.

Regional builder Charles Church South Midlands started onsite following the completion of a landmark property deal that will not only provide much needed new homes, but will also breathe economic life into the village and lay the foundations for a thriving new community in Selly Oak,

Charles Church will invest £20 million in the construction of 98 executive homes each built with a special arts and crafts theme and designed to reflect the local history and unique situation of the site. In addition to the new homes Charles Church will create and new cricket pitch and pavilion.

The village style setting will form the back drop to the development that will be built around a beautifully landscaped green in-keeping with the development’s name – The Oval.

Andy Peters, managing director of Charles Church South Midlands, said:

“These are very exciting times for Selly Oak and we are investing £100 million into the regeneration of this iconic site, with around £20million on this first phase.”

“These new homes at The Oval will be available for purchase from November and we are already experiencing a high volume of enquiries even before a single brick has been laid.”

The development will offer the perfect balance of village style living with easy access to central Birmingham just 3 miles away.
