We have been advising a Consortium including Homes England, Taylor Wimpey Plc and Vistry Plc on the promotion and delivery structures for one of the largest urban extensions in the UK which will deliver 6,000 new homes, 4 new schools and 3 new local centres. 

The Langley Sustainable Urban Extension on the outskirts of Birmingham will take 20 years to build out and is a scheme of national profile in which the Government is investing £100 million through Homes England.

Councillor Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, said:

“Langley is an unparalleled opportunity to not only deliver new homes, but to establish a new community and set a national benchmark for development at this scale. It is the chance to create a new place for people delivering an exemplar residential development for future generations. The new community at Langley will be supported by a wide range of infrastructure from new public transport connections, to a network of walking and cycling routes, extensive green infrastructure and public spaces, to education facilities and local amenities. In creating this new part of the City, there is the opportunity to incorporate new built form with the area’s unique assets to create a distinct identity and living environment.”

Callum Nuttall, Head of Property, said:

“As residential development lawyers, it is exciting to be involved in a scheme of national importance which will create a great place to live. The work that we are doing will help to create a healthy place and flourishing community which will support the needs of the growing population of the city”.
