Another time round for Mixed Use scheme for Moseley

Following a previous attempt to redevelop the site of Bristol Street Motors in Moseley, Mixed use development in Moseley motors out Bristol Street Motors, which itself followed two previous attempts to redevelop the site in 2004 and 2005, Tesco is set to attempt to develop a store on the Meteor Ford site, Once more unto the fray for Moseley superstore plan.

The developer has had extensive talks with Birmingham City Council and local Moseley groups about the health centre and traffic concerns which has seen it revise its previous plans so that the health centre will now form a seperate building together with a landmark feature on the corner of St Mary's Row and Oxford Road.

The following details are taken from a report going before Moseley and Kings Heath Ward Committee 24 March 2010.

It is proposed to demolish the existing buildings and redevelop the site for
a mixed use scheme comprising retail, sheltered residential housing with
amenity space and medical centre. A single building is proposed
measuring a maximum of 69 metres by 48 metres. The building follows
the established building lines of adjoining shops and offices at 82 – 90 St
Mary’s Row and the adjoining houses along Oxford Road. Vehicular
access to the site is gained to the forecourt in front of the medical centre
and to the rear car park and retail loading bay via Oxford Road.
