Birmingham City Council

Kings Norton Planning Framework

Approved Planning Policies Banner


This Framework provides detailed planning guidance for development partners and forms the basis for considering planning applications in the future. The Planning Framework sets out the way in which the area will be regenerated over the next 20 years.

The proposals centre around the Pool Farm, Primrose and Hawkesley Estates and include proposals for a new local centre on Redditch Road and new spine road, surrounded by new housing, open space and community facitilies.

A copy of the Framework is below, along with a map showing the area covered by the proposals.

A Development and Design Guidance document has also been prepared (below) to help and advise on the development potential of the local centre on Redditch Road, as the first phase of redeveloping Primrose estate.

A Compulsory Purchase Order has been confirmed to assemble the site, and it is hoped that this proposal will more forward early in 2014.

Elsewhere on the estates, new housing has been delivered by Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust (BMHT) at Brooklea Grove, and planning permission has been granted for new housing at Monksway/Walkers Heath Road."
