Committee Gives The Green Light To SevenHomes’ Alexandra Hospital Scheme in Redditch

25th May 2023

SevenHomes, the regional housebuilder by SevenCapital Group, has successfully received resolution to grant planning permission from Redditch Borough Council to deliver brand new homes on land next to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

The former NHS site off Woodrow Drive, which was previously earmarked as surplus land, will be transformed into a collection of 92 high quality one bedroom apartments and two, three and four bedroom homes, with 20% allocated as affordable properties to support local housing need.

The development, named Wire Croft, will also provide circa £700,000 in financial contributions towards education, sporting pitch improvements, highways, and public transport, as well as £50,000 towards further town centre enhancements.

Ideally positioned adjacent to the popular Wirehill Wood, the site benefits from being located just a short five minute drive or bus ride into Redditch town centre and train station, which offers regular direct trains into Birmingham city centre.

The development of the 5.85 acre site will enable the capital raised to be injected back into the NHS to help fund much needed services.

Abdul Ali, executive director and head of office for SevenHomes, said: “The existing buildings have remained unoccupied for over a decade, so we are delighted to have received the green light from committee to breathe new life into this currently vacant site.

“With its proximity to the hospital and connectivity to the main town centre and Birmingham city centre, the site offers a fantastic location for good quality, modern family homes for local residents. Crucially, the development will not only enhance the local area and support housing demand but will also positively contribute towards improving facilities at Alexandra Hospital through the capital raised.”
