An innovative, eco-friendly, affordable residential and retail premises will be coming to Stirchley next year, with the Stirchley Co-operative Development (SCD) breaking ground on their Pershore Road site.
SCD is a group of local people in housing and worker co-operatives who are developing land on Pershore Road (next to the British Oak) to house local businesses along with 39 apartments where residents will be charged affordable rent. Loaf bakery and cookery school, Birmingham Bike Foundry, and Artefact will all move into the building once it is completed, which is expected to be autumn 2024.
Members of the SCD were joined by Selly Oak MP Steve McCabe, Stirchley councillor Mary Locke, members of the Forum Committee, and a host of other guests to mark the breaking ground.
