Bromsgrove sits just south of the M42 and east of the M5 junction 4A. Bromsgrove is an important service centre within the local area, and is located just 14 miles south of Birmingham City Centre.
The town is well served by public transport, with regular daytime bus services running Monday to Saturday between local towns and villages. Bromsgrove train station is located to the south-east of the town centre (situated on the Midland Main Line) and serves northbound trains to Birmingham and beyond and southbound trains to Hereford and beyond.
Whitford Green is a 42 acre site and is extremely well positioned in relation to Bromsgrove Town Centre. The site lies on the western side of Bromsgrove. Its eastern boundary is formed by Whitford Road, a well-used but unclassified local road. To the north, Whitford Road joins the main highway network at Kidderminster Road (the A448) and to the south, Whitford Road becomes Fox Lane, which reaches the main network at Rock Hill (B4091).
To the south, the site adjoins further housing around Sunningdale Road. To the north is Timberhonger Lane, a minor country lane, where there are also two existing dwellings and a pumping station. To the west, there is open countryside and the M5 motorway.
A public footpath runs from Sunningdale Road, along the site’s southern boundary, and gives views over the site.
Local Facilities In The Area Include:
Existing public transport facilities exist close to the site. The 98 bus services run along Whitford Road offering daily options for use from the bus stop adjacent to the site at Deansway. This route connects to the 144 Bus Route which travels into the Town Centre where further bus connections and routing facilities are available. Financial contributions towards enhanced public transport options will be made as part of the development.
Planned Transport Improvements
Whitford Green will kick-start infrastructure delivery in Bromsgrove with improved infrastructure and highways improvements including a new roundabout at the Fox Lane/Rock Hill junction. These works will be completed prior to new residents taking occupation.
