SevenHomes Granted Planning Permission For 108 New Homes On Historic Blue Bird Toffee Site
SevenCapital’s housebuilding arm, SevenHomes, been granted planning permission for 108 new homes on the site of the former Blue Bird Toffee factory in Hunnington, Halesowen.
The plans will see the Grade II listed former Administration building, along with the former Welfare building, restored and converted to 22 apartments and townhouses. Meanwhile the remaining industrial units will be demolished to make way for a further 86 new-build homes, which will be a mix of two-, three-, four- and five- bedroom, mainly two-storey houses.
The historic factory was originally built in the late 1920s for Harry Vincent Limited of Birmingham, manufacturers of Blue Bird toffee and was considered very modern and forward-thinking for its time, due to its inclusion of a model village, village shop with post office, leisure facilities and in particular its welfare provision.
The site offers future residents access to stunning countryside, due to its location close to the vast Clent Hills, and easy access into Birmingham, alongside all local amenities within Hunnington itself and other surrounding towns and villages.
Jonathon Richards, Managing Director of SevenHomes said: “We are thrilled to have achieved planning for this hugely popular, historical site, which has sat derelict for many years. Our plans aim to breathe a new lease of life into the site, by restoring and maintaining its heritage whilst introducing new and attractive, purpose-built homes for the existing and its future on-site community to enjoy for generations to come.
