Stephen Cleveley, sales director for Persimmon West Midlands, said: “We introduced the apartments at on this development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes in order to appeal to a wider audience, as our experience of selling homes on the former Goodyear site tells us that this type of property is much sought after.
