Aston Regional Investment Site Compulsory Purchase Order
Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/astonriscpo
The Aston Newtown & Lozells Area Action Plan (AAP)was prepared and adopted in July 2012. It designates a 20 hectare Regional Investment Site (RIS) on land in Aston Hall Road, Lichfield Road, Queens Road and Grosvenor Road, adjacent to the A38.
The RIS occupies a strategic location by Junction 6 of the M6 and lies close to the City Centre and some of the City’s major employers, including Jaguar Land Rover (JLR).
The RIS will contribute to the portfolio of employment opportunities in the City and will play an essential part in delivering the strategic vision for the area by helping to create new jobs and a more flexible and competitive economy.
The purpose of the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) is to complete the site assembly of Phase 1 of the RIS, which is being brought forward in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) for new economic development purposes. The partners already own 9 hectares (85%) of the land needed to deliver Phase 1 (10.5 hectares overall).
The CPO covers the remaining 1.5 hectares (15%) needed to complete Phase 1. As this phase includes approximately half the RIS, its completion is likely to act as a catalyst for wider regeneration and the latter phases of development. We have therefore made the CPO to acquire the necessary land interests.
The above Order will be considered at a Public Local Inquiry, which is taking place on the 16 – 18th September 2014 in Room 145, Conference Aston, Aston University, Aston Triangle, Birmingham B4 7ET.
