Projects: Tipton Town Centre Regeneration

  • Investment
  • Location

The project will regenerate Tipton town centre. It will involve the freehold purchase of under-utilised and poor quality residential and commercial premises which will be redeveloped alongside two council-owned sites to deliver new high-quality residential and commercial properties.

The Levelling Up Funds will be utilised to deliver new high-quality residential properties, to improve existing retail premises on Owen St and dramatically improve the quality of public realm in the town centre. This project will allow for the construction of new affordable homes for local people that are close to Tipton railway station and the Midland Metro extension.

The redevelopment proposals for each site will be unique and designed to respond to the characteristics and technical constraints and opportunities of each site. Surveys will be undertaken to understand ground conditions, following which the council’s architects will prepare details redevelopment proposals in consultation with the local community.

The initial proposals seek to deliver the following outputs and outcomes:

65 new affordable homes across 3 sites on Union St
• A more welcoming and safer-feeling town centre.
• A reduction in the number of retail units in the town to better reflect the demand for retail space.
• Increased land values in the town which will support further opportunities to deliver regeneration.
• A reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour.
• New tree planting and public realm improvements adjacent to sites
