The development site at Stourbridge Road will be sold to Cordwell Property Group, Bromsgrove District Council’s Cabinet has decided.
The site of the old Market Hall has also been put up for sale, which the Conservative Cabinet is confident will attract a number of bidders.
The previous developers of the Market Hall site, Opus, withdrew from the project earlier this year. However, the Cabinet were keen to stress that there are a number of potential tenants are interested in taking over the site.
Belbroughton-based developer Cordwell have had their offer for the Stourbridge Road car park site approved by the Cabinet to build three retail units, with potential for a further first floor unit, as well as 35 car parking spaces.
Coun. Rita Dent, Portfolio Holder for the Town Centre, said:
“The sale of the site at Stourbridge Road, and the marketing of the Market Hall site are excellent news for Bromsgrove. The withdrawal of Opus was of course a setback, but the announcement of the sale of the Stourbridge Road site shows that the work on the Town Centre is now racing forward again. The Cabinet is confident that we will get a buyer for the Market Hall site.”
