Birmingham City Council is on the hunt for a masterplanner for a 273-hectare ‘urban extension’ near Sutton Coldfield
The development will host up to 6,000 new homes alongside new amenities and sustainable transport links on former greenbelt land to the west of the A38 at Langley.
Aiming to achieve the ‘highest standards of sustainability and design’, the Langley urban extension will feature family-sized housing designed to meet Birmingham’s growing population.
Key elements planned for the development include new two new primary schools, a secondary school, health centre and a green corridor connecting to nearby New Hall Valley Country Park.
The winning team will produce a viable masterplan, development delivery plan and supporting documents for the project.
The completed documents will be used to determine future planning applications and will also be expected to demonstrate how the urban extension meets Birmingham Development Plan policies
The deadline for returning tenders is 24 June.
