This 4 acre freehold site, fronting Birmingham Street, Stourbridge, had been occupied for many years by Cox Hire Limited. Barberry set up a joint venture with the landowner and following the relocation of the business Barberry successfully promoted the site through the Local Plan process for a mixed use scheme.
Having secured planning for an 80 bedroom Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre family pub Barberry carried out the demolition of the former offices and warehouse accommodation, completed the ground remediation and enabling works prior to construction. The Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre are open and trading. The final site of approximately 1 acre has been sold.
The scheme represents a £6m investment in the town and has created up to 65 new jobs in the local area.
