Our development

Building new homes for new co-operative members

20/20’s Management Committee is currently exploring developing new homes on Alcester Road next to the Diwan Restaurant – a site currently owned by Birmingham City Council (BCC).

With assistance from Cllr Straker Welds, 20/20 has met BCC officers, who gave us an option on the site to enable us to develop feasible plans.

Current scheme drawings show that it is possible to develop 11 one and two bedroomed flats on the site, but the scheme needs to go through planning permission which may change the scheme design.  We are planning that the scheme will have limited car use with only 2 car parking spaces and a sizeable garden at the back for members housed in the scheme to use.  We have also particularly said that we want to explore the potential for the latest innovative methods to ensure maximum environmental sustainability.

We were awarded Government funding though the Community Housing Fund to enable us to work out scheme costings and to employ a development agent – assembling the various consultants/architects etc to enable the scheme to progress to planning permission.  We are not far from submitting a planning application, but this has been delayed due to lockdown.

BCC will nominate to the homes developed and we have met with the St Basils homeless charity, who do excellent work to empower young people, to explore whether BCC’s nominations could come through them.

We will update the website regarding this development as it progresses.
