Arden Cross is a site with a number of different stakeholders including HS2 and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, Highways England, Transport for West Midlands, Centro, the West Midlands Combined Authority and GBSLEP, as well as other major economic assets including the NEC, Jaguar Land Rover and Birmingham Airport.
The timing of the delivery for Arden Cross is related to HS2 receiving Royal Assent (timetabled for December 2016), and the adoption of Solihull’s Local Plan (timetabled for late 2017). It is anticipated that the Arden Cross Consortium could submit an outline planning application during 2018.
HS2 given green light by Parliament as expected. Work on the physical line will then begin, including HS2 Interchange Station.
Solihull Local Plan adopted, with Arden Cross site included within the adopted plan.
