DESPITE the economic downturn the developers of The Green business park in Shirley are aiming to press ahead with their plans for the site.

The developers say they have taken on board concerns from local residents and have revised their plans accordingly.

PRUPIM, owner of The Green, has submitted a planning application to Solihull Council - an outline application for a new masterplan for the whole site.

It proposes three new office buildings, ranging between two and four storeys and landscaping improvements.

The masterplan, which shows how the site could be developed subject to the needs of future tenants, includes a number of new office buildings up to a maximum height of five storeys.

Responses from the public prompted a number of changes, including lowering the height of the two buildings closest to homes along Stratford Road from four storeys to three storeys.

Also the proposed screening used along the site boundary with residences on Blackford Road has been revised.

There are also new security measures and the expansion of CCTV site wide to cover all public access areas.

Solihull Council will soon be undertaking its own statutory consultation with stakeholders and the public before determining the application.
