Lets hope if they (Tesco) do sell to house builders the council planners put a time on any future project going ahead....or we just see us back in the same situation.

Too right villan. WE do not want to go through this sorry saga again!

btw,
It's not looking good for TESCO

If the land is sold to house builders then that will determine long term how Stirchley will develop.  Cheap flats or social housing or good quality first homes will change the demographics of the area.

It would be nice to think that good quality homes for first time buyers looking to start a family would be part of any housing project, along with social housing aimed at both young and older occupants.

Stirchley isn't included in this but who knows what will happen in the future............certainly not Stirchley residents.

I'm fairly certain any new development housing sites has to include 10% for social housing

Yes i think that there is a requirement for social housing.
It would be nice to include a clause where bought property could not be let out as well...discourage people buying up lots of houses to let at extortionate prices.
Perhaps Tesco will surprise us and sell the ground or build.

Got an e-mail from Pete Walker this morning saying that Tesco are going to pull the plug on building the Stirchley site (this is backed up by a post on Steve McCabe's website).  More details to follow, but I can't say I'm surprised.
