The High Street garage and neighbouring Cheshire House offices will be replaced with 28 one and two bedroom flats under the plans by developer McCarthy & Stone.

An exhibition was held at the Greswolde Arms Hotel on May 17 about the plans (below), which will need permission from Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.

The firm said: “McCarthy & Stone is keen to ensure its design reflects the special architectural qualities of Knowle, and enhances the character of the High Street.

“Local feedback received following the public exhibition is currently being reviewed and will inform the plans as they are progressed, prior to the submission of a full planning application.

“The feedback received by McCarthy & Stone to date has been broadly positive, with many people stating that they welcomed the re-use of the site with specialist accommodation for older people and the suitability of the site’s location for retirement homes.”
