Good progress is being made on site at Farnborough Road to develop 123 properties. 24 of these will be owned by The Pioneer Group, 40 will be retained by Birmingham City Council and the remainder will be offered for sale by Lovell.

The properties under The Pioneer Group’s management will be:

  • 10 one bedroom apartments;
  • 8 two bedroom houses; and
  • 6 three bedroom houses.

Although initially being designed to be offered on an affordable rent basis, we are now delighted to be able to offer our new homes at social rent levels. These levels are set at a much lower rate.

The Pioneer Group’s properties will initially be let through the Castle Vale Community Housing (CVCH) waiting list, which favours a local connection to Castle Vale. Please click here for more information on the CVCH allocations scheme, along with a link to the application form. We have started allocating these homes already, with completion expected soon.

It is recommended that customers also join the Birmingham City Council scheme as after the initial lettings, future vacancies will be subject to the same 50% nomination rights by the Council, meaning that half of any relets on the scheme will be filled through the Council. It is likely that the Council will also fill their 40 properties on the site form their own waiting lists.
