Consultation launched on former Sainsbury’s Selly Oak site

20th July 2023 | Jack Oliver

A joint venture between Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital has begun a public consultation regarding the future of a former Sainsbury’s site in Selly Oak, Birmingham.

The Galliard Apsley Partnership is seeking to transform the vacant property into student accommodation along with 14,000 sq ft of commercial elements.

Over 10,000 sq ft of medical space is also set to be constructed.

The site, which is bounded by Chapel Lane, Harborne Lane, and Bristol Road, was acquired earlier in the year and has lain vacant since 2018.

The joint venture is aiming to create a scheme that delivers an expected gross development value of £160m. The partnership is also aiming to create a total of around 2,250 new homes in the city.

Between 18 July and 1 August, local residents have been invited to provide their views on the proposed developments. A drop-in session at the Sense TouchBase Pears community centre is also being held on 25 July.

The comments will be considered before the Galliard Apsley Partnership submits its formal plan to Birmingham City Council.
