About the Site
The site is located off Auckland Drive, Castle Bromwich B36 0DD. The site was previously occupied by the former Bosworth Infant and Junior School which was demolished in spring 2021. The site is therefore cleared and vacant. The proposed application site also includes part of the adjoining Bosworth Playing Fields.
The site is bounded to the north by residential properties, Bosworth Playing Fields to the west and a Childcare Centre/Nursery and secondary school Referral Unit to the east. The south of the site abuts Auckland Drive, beyond which are further residential properties. There is a public footpath, Avis Walk, which is located beyond the playing fields to the west and rear of the site providing pedestrian access to the residential area to the north. Existing access to the site is off Auckland Drive and is shared with the adjoining Childcare Centre and Referral Unit.
The site is in a sustainable location with good access to a range of services and facilities. There are bus stops close to the site offering regular bus services and Water Orton railway station is approximately 3.5km away.
