Blackstone Firm Secures Permission For 200 Homes On Longbridge Site

St. Modwen Homes is to build more apartments on the former Mini manufacturing site at Dalmuir Road.

Blackstone-owned St. Modwen Homes has secured a resolution to grant full planning permission to build an additional 205 new homes at Longbridge, Birmingham on the historic MG Rover site, once home to the Mini.

Birmingham City Council resolved to grant full planning permission, which will see three new apartment blocks erected on land situated just off Dalmuir Road. The 205 homes will include 100 one-bed apartments and 105 two-bed apartments. 

All three apartment blocks will have communal roof terraces available exclusively to residents, plus space for more than 200 bicycles and 105 car parking spaces, all of which will include an electric vehicle charging point.

The wider development will deliver thousands of homes across a vast site in South Birmingham, with 7,500 new jobs expected over the coming years in Longbridge.

This year, work started to create a large veterinary hospital, creating over 100 new full-time jobs, with planning also granted in August 2022 for a new precision engineering centre sought by St. Modwen on behalf of Waters Corporation. This will also create up to 100 highly skilled new jobs.

The site has been made possible following £20M of infrastructure investment in partnership with the West Midlands Combined Authority. Longbridge has been regenerated with homes, retail, education and green spaces delivered to date.

On completion of the regeneration, St. Modwen plans to create a total of 3,000 new homes, 2M SF of commercial floorspace and up to 10,000 jobs at Longbridge.
