Last month, the application by Taylor Wimpey was thrown out by Solihull Council’s planning committee.
At their meeting on January 23, members ruled a residential development would constitute inappropriate development in the green belt.
But just a few weeks later, the developers have lodged an appeal with the Government’s Planning Inspectorate.
This means the housing scheme will be the latest to go to a public inquiry, presided over by a Planning Inspector.
A date and venue for the inquiry has yet to be fixed.
