About Solihull Village

Solihull Village will provide new opportunities for over-55s in Shirley when it opens in 2020.

Based on the site of the former Powergen offices at Shirley, the village will offer a new lease of life for over 55s. At ExtraCare, our philosophy is that later life is for doing more, not less. Solihull Village will give you the chance be part of an active and vibrant community, where you can share your skills and learn new ones.

With up to 50 activities a week, you’ll never be at a loss for something to do. The village will have a host of facilities, including an arts and crafts room and a cinema, where you can stay active and take part in the community on your doorstep.

Relax in your own apartment

Your apartment in the village is designed to be fully accessible and make life easier for residents.

We offer mixed tenure options, including outright purchase, shared ownership and rental. ExtraCare aims to ensure that the village is affordable for every applicant whatever their financial circumstances.
