Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) is publishing its Local Development Plan (LDP) and Allocation 12, which refers to 'Land South of Dog Kennel Lane' is a preferred development site.

This site, which will see the development of 1000 homes, will be built on land that is commonly known as 'Light Hall Farm'. This site configured with site 11 (TRW/The Green and Stratford Road) which is primarily brown field/commercial land.

The already gridlocked roads of Dog Kennel Lane and Tanworth Lane already witness severe congestion at peak times and there is a serious burden on an area already seeing substantial development – BVP, CG, DH as well as commercial developments in the area. The immediate area, as well as Shirley in general will not be able to cope with the extra traffic this development will bring.In addition, Cheswick Green witnessed severe flooding in March and May 2018 and the risk of adding to flooding problems is high.
