Our development in Birmingham is a good example of collaboration to deliver multiple housing goals on one council-owned site.
Birmingham City Council was proactive and creative with its approach to developing an underused site in the Bartley Green area of the city when it commissioned HBV Group to deliver hi-tech housing for local disabled people.
In 2015, an unremarkable four-acre site comprised of a mixture of allotments and scrubland. Perfectly located in easy reach of local shops and community centres it was identified by HBV and adult social care commissioners, cabinet members and estate officers as a good location to build new accommodation for disabled people and affordable homes.
Successful outcomes for residents and the Local Authority
The opportunity to develop on a council-owned site is one that we relish. It means that we are able to work collaboratively and efficiently with all stakeholders and means a community-focused development can be truly integrated with the needs of the local authority.
