Pool Farm Estate Kings Norton Compulsory Purchase Order 2021

Birmingham City Council (Pool Farm Estate Kings Norton) Compulsory Purchase Order 2021

The Pool Farm Estate forms part of the Kings Norton 3 Estates – which has been a focus for regeneration and redevelopment over the last 20 years.

Substantial new development has already taken place following significant local consultation and the adoption of the Kings Norton Planning Framework, which has guided change in the area.

The proposed clearance programme for the Pool Farm Estate was agreed by Cabinet of the City Council on 14 February 2017 which also gave authority to the making of a compulsory purchase order to enable the acquisition of any property interests that could not be acquired on a voluntary basis.

Planning applications for the redevelopment of the proposed clearance areas across the estate were approved by Planning Committee on 4 March 2021, and these will be built out by the Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust which is the housebuilding arm of the City Council. 267 new family homes are to be provided for both sale and rent.

The City Council has now made a compulsory purchase order to acquire the small number of properties across the clearance areas that are still in private ownership.
