About Church Hill

Church Hill is a dynamic neighborhood that plays a significant role in the local governance of Redditch. Due to its size and population, yearly elections are held to select councillors who represent the interests of its residents.

Established in 1975, Church Hill is one of the more recent developments in Redditch. Its distinctive layout, reminiscent of the Radburn model, features access roads such as Paper Mill Drive, Ravensbank Drive, and Moons Moat Drive, which encircle the estate, providing convenient connectivity.

Residences in Church Hill are predominantly situated around cul-de-sacs, fostering a sense of community and privacy. The estate encompasses Moon’s Moat, Marlfield Barn, and Bomford Hill, the latter being home to a Peace Memorial, symbolizing the area’s commitment to harmony and unity.

Church Hill is divided into three main sections: North, Centre, and South. The North is primarily composed of private residential properties, while the Centre houses a small commercial hub, including a community center, medical facilities, shops, and schools. In contrast, the South consists mainly of social housing, fostering diversity and inclusivity within the neighborhood.

Separated by Church Hill Way, a buses-only road, the North and South sections maintain distinct identities while coexisting harmoniously. This unique geometric layout, typical of planned new town developments, aims to promote social cohesion while respecting individual lifestyles.

Church Hill’s educational institutions, notably Church Hill Middle School, serve as focal points for community integration, bringing together children from diverse backgrounds. Although Church Hill North previously had two first schools, Ravensbank First School and Marfield Farm First School, they have since been consolidated or closed.

Named after St. Leonard’s Church and the hill upon which it stands, Church Hill embodies a rich history and a promising future. We invite you to explore our website and discover all that Church Hill has to offer – from its picturesque landscapes to its vibrant community spirit.
