Public have their say on £3 billion development

Arden Cross, home to the HS2 Interchange Station and one of the country’s best connected development sites, is asking the public for their views on its plans to create a new business, leisure and residential destination. 

The proposed 346-acre mixed use development will be built to the east of the NEC campus and M42 motorway. It has the potential to boost the regional economy of the West Midlands by more than £1 billion a year, while supporting up to 27,000 jobs and creating 3,000 new homes and 6 million sq ft of employment space. 

Throughout September 2020, members of the public can view the proposed plans at www.ardencross.com and leave their comments via an online form. People’s feedback will then be used to help inform the final proposed masterplan design.  

Located at the very heart of the UK, Arden Cross sits alongside Birmingham Airport, the NEC, Birmingham Business Park and Jaguar Land Rover and is an integral part of the wider plans for the UK Central Hub. 

Linking the new HS2 Interchange Station to the nearby NEC, Airport, Resorts World and Birmingham International station, Arden Cross will provide direct access to London and the major regional centres of England via the high speed rail network.  

The masterplan proposals have already been shared with the public via the Arden Cross website and people are now being invited to have their say about those plans in a month long consultation.  

Ben Gray, Arden Cross project director, said: “The intention for Arden Cross is to deliver a world class development with the HS2 Interchange Station at its heart and by bringing our masterplan details out to public consultation, we are a step closer to delivering that ambition.  

“We are inviting  the public to tell us what they think about our plans. The  346-acre site provides the opportunity to deliver significant economic growth and a sustainable mixed use environment bringing together new homes, work and learning places, all served by extensive transport links and car free public spaces. 

“Unlocking this transformational opportunity will require a truly collaborative approach between the public and private sector and as we ask for input from the public, I am looking forward to working closely with central government, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, the Urban Growth Company and the West Midlands Combined Authority, as well as with local people, to bring our plans to fruition.” 

Details about the proposals and how to register feedback and give views can all now be found at www.ardencross.com/consultation.
