Dickens Heath

Richborough Estates are promoting a 91 acre (36.8 hectare) site to the west of Dickens Heath, Solihull. The site is split into two parcels by Tythe Barn Lane. A sports hub would be created on the northern parcel which enables the existing and upgrading of the quality of the existing sporting facilities for the benefit of the clubs and the wider community, whilst the southern parcel is being promoted for residential development of approximately 600 dwellings. By reason of the site’s location, any future occupiers would have easy access on foot and cycle to the railway station and the local services available within the area, including those within Dickens Heath and Tidbury Green.

 The site has been put forward as a preferred option for Green Belt release within the emerging Solihull Local Plan Review. We have been in talks with the sports clubs located within the site area, and we will continue to discuss the benefit of the future growth of Dickens Heath with Sports England and Solihull Council through the remainder of the Local Plan Review process.
