Three thousand homes proposed for Lawley Village will set blueprint for sustainable development on English Partnerships land

English Partnerships has submitted plans for an urban extension to Telford that will include 3,000 homes, offices, leisure and retail facilities.

EP said that the Lawley Village development will form a blueprint for future urban extensions, and will follow best practice in sustainable growth. Plans for Lawley Village are now with the Borough of Telford & Wrekin.

Development of the brownfield site – 65% of which was a coal mine - will provide 20% of Telford’s housing requirement over the next ten years.

Lawley has been masterplanned in association with the Prince’s Foundation and will adhere to design codes established in consultation with the local community. The codes will govern the design of the development including the transport links.

EP project manager Steven Edwards said: “We’ve been working very hard over the last year alongside local community and stakeholders to develop a plan which will sustain a wide variety of social, economic and environmental mixes.”

The village will consist of four neighbourhoods focused on a new centre and public transport node called Lawley Square. The neighbourhoods will have distinctive characters and will be known as Newdale Valley, Lawley Village, Lawley Bank and Newdale.
