Ashley Heath, property director at Octopus Real Estate, said: “Having worked closely with IM Properties and the local planning authority, we are delighted to receive approval for the 80-bed care home.
“The high-quality design is centrally located at Blythe Valley Park and sits alongside the new residential developments being constructed by Bloor and Crest Homes.
“The site also benefits from being opposite the proposed new neighbourhood centre and has extensive landscaping and facilities.
“Its proximity to the amenities of Solihull, in conjunction to the expanding facilities at Blythe Valley Park, will create the ideal environment for a care home ensuring comfortable surroundings for both residents and their families.
“The complete delivery of this development will require specialist knowledge at each stage of the project.
“Having already successfully sourced the land and secured planning permission, we look forward to supporting the construction process and sharing further development milestones with the local community.”
