Mixed use development in Moseley motors out Bristol Street Motors

The end of November saw a planning application submitted for the former Bristol Street Motors, Meteor Buildings, on St. Marys Row in Moseley.

Application number

Demolition of existing dealership/buildings and redevelopment to provide a mixed use development comprising a medical practice/surgery, retail convenience foodstore and 19no. 'sheltered' residential apartments together with 103no. parking spaces, a new access and associated landscaping.

Applicant name and address
Exmax (Moseley) Limited
c/o The Tyler Parkes Partnership

The site has been under discussion with Birmingham City Council since 2003 with an aim of redeveloping it. Two previous applications had been recieved prior to this development, again for mixed use development of a food store and 24 apartments. Those proposals were refused on the grounds of design and appearence and the impact on the character of the area and conservation area together with the impact on the neighbours environment together with highways.

The proposal is for:

1) The demolition of existing motor dealership buildings, including showroom, workshops and offices;
2) The erection of a retail 'convenience' foodstore (to be operated by Tesco) at ground floor, with a medical centre/surgery on the second floor and 19 no. sheltered residential apartments;
3) 103 car parking spaces a bicycle store and 3 ranks
of bicycle hoops, servicing, access and landscaping.

The medical surgery proposal has been developed particularly in light of the need's of Wake Green Surgery which has been trying to identiy a suitable site for new premises.

The following images are from the planning application.

A major supermarket would likely kill off Moseley Village as a viable shopping centre.
Cars and large delivery vehicles entering the only car park entrance in Oxford Rd would vastly exacerbate existing traffic problems at peak times.
School Rd would become the main route for entry from the Kings Heath end of the city.

Excellent proposal as it will bring competition to and much more choice to the retail stores that are already there. However, Birmingham City Council and NWM seem to be dilly-dallying about whether to run a commuter line through there. Moseley *DESPERATELY* needs a new train station.
